UPDATE: Lynchburg's Doughboy statue is holding its bayonet again.

****************

Lynchburg, VA – The bayonet will be welded back on Lynchburg's "Doughboy" statue Thursday morning, according to Monument Terrace Troop Rally organizer Steve Bozeman.

Bozeman has kept the piece since it was recovered from the James River, after being broken by a vandal in October.

He says extra pins have been placed inside to provide greater strength.

AMG Machine Shop is doing the work at no cost, saving the city around $5,000.
