Description

One of Rogers's most well-liked works, One More Shot depicts two wounded soldiers. One is shown standing with his arm in a sling as he tried to retrieve a cartridge out of its case. The second sits as he wraps a bandage around his leg. The sculpture gained popularity due to its depiction of the tenacity of soldiers and became a favored gift for veterans.
