Jonathan  Skinny  Wainwright was born at Fort Walla Walla during the cavalry era, within the present VA medical center grounds. He is a hero of the desperate struggle for Bataan and Corregidor, a prisoner of war with his men for three years, including the infamous Bataan Death March. Wainwright retired from the military in 1947. He died in 1953. The statue shows the General saluting all Veterans that have fought and sacrificed for this countries freedom. In his left hand he carries a cane that was given to him by General Douglas MacArthur upon Wainwright's return from the prison camps. The larger-than-life monument was unveiled at the VA Hospital in Walla Walla, Washington on Veteran's Day, November 11, 1996 and the Hospital's name was officially changed to the Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial Veteran's Affairs Medical Center! Learn more about General Wainwright here - http://www.historylink.org/index.cfm?DisplayPage=output.cfm&file_id=9212
