A uniformed soldier stands behind a podium, turned slightly toward his proper left and his proper right arm is raised. He has a bandage around his forehead and his eyes are injured. His proper left hand is missing and appears bandaged and there is a crutch leaning against the podium. On the podium is an emblem with the monogram RF surrounded by sprigs of leaves.
