About the Remington “Band of Brothers” Trophy: This large, bronze sculpture created by artist James Muir depicts a D-Day scenario in World War II, with U.S. soldiers in a jeep breaking through enemy lines to carry a wounded officer to safety. The sculpture includes “bullet holes” surrounding the Jeep, a large American flag on the Jeep hood and a tall red flag. Additionally, it has a 24-inch pentagon-shaped wooden base to highlight the U.S. theme of the sculpture. The trophy was donated to NRA by Remington Arms Company, Inc., as a tribute to the heroism of Americans who fought to preserve freedom against fascism.
