    "The design for the first national monument to Native American veterans in Washington came to Harvey Pratt in a dream.

    "Pratt, a 77-year-old Marine Corps veteran and member of the southern Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes, woke up with a vision: a steel circle poised above a drum whose surface rippled with water, a flame burning in the circle’s center, the entire structure ringed by a low wall studded with four tall lances. He sat down in his living room in Guthrie, Okla., grabbed a yellow legal pad and started sketching."

    Design is chosen for first national monument to Native American military veterans
