Delaware, like others, has no official memorial, but each of her three counties have a memorial. The final one was dedicated, in Dover, this past Veteran's Day. This one, located in Wilmington is dedicated to all 166 Delawareans who perished.

Again, the theme of comrade helping comrade dominates the site.

Each of the heroes names are listed on the base of the monument. In addition, each of the official seals of the branches of the military are prominently displayed.

The memorial is located in Brandywine Park on Washington Street, adjacent to the Zoo. Brandywine Park is, also, the home of the African American Medal of Honor Winners memorial.
