Placed at the entryway of the Barracks is a large, elaborate stone arch that commemorates the liberation of New Paducah, now known as MercTown. It was carved from a single, massive slab of stone by a team of Dwarven craftsmen. On it are engraved depictions of the battle, images of the mercenaries, and the words of the treaty signed by the three commanders.

An honor guard is posted at the arch during daylight hours, primarily to impress tourists and visitors . The guard detail consists of six soldiers in full battle gear (M.D.C. environmental battle armor, laser rifle, ion pistol, etc.). They stand at rigid attention throughout the day, and answer any questions visitors might ask regarding directions or police assistance. At specified times of day, the guards carry out a series of drill movements to the delight of onlookers. While the displays of the honor guard are impressive, it is a duty that most MercTown Defenders go to great lengths to avoid. It is used as a disciplinary measure, and soldiers are tasked to the honor guard as a punishment for minor infractions. In addition to the guards and troops inside the military compound, the Arch can be barricaded by a Naruni Enterprises heavy force field (300 M.D.C.) that not only blocks access to the compound but simultaneously protects the Arch from damage.
