This memorial window is dedicated to servicemen from Washington County who fought in World War I. Dedicated on July 4, 1919, the window is in six sections. The central and largest section depicts a group of soldiers rising up from a trench and charging into battle. Flanking this scene on the left is a cannon representing conflict on land; on the right, a battleship representing conflict on the seas. An American flag is abstracted as a rainbow that arches over the entire span of the window. In the lower, left-hand corner is the emblem for the Red Cross; in the right hand corner is the emblem for the YMCA.
