New Jersey VI

This  memorial was originally dedicated to WWII vets, but has been updated to include Korea and Vietnam. This is not unusual and seems to happen for a number of reasons. What is odd about this one is that upon its face it says Delaware Township, but a sign just a few feet away says Cherry Hill. I have no idea why this is so and have been unable, as so often happens to run down any explanations. So, as always, if you know something, I would love to hear from you.

It is interesting that the town lost no one in the Korean War, but included it as an honor to those who served. I have not seen this before.

Five from the area are forever remembered and honored here.

This memorial may be found near the corner of Mercer Street and Graham Ave.

Next time, on the 12th, we return to New Mexico to  visit a memorial there. Join me at 9:00am to honor some of those from Northern New Mexico who gave their all in Vietnam.
