New Jersey XIV

The memorial here began as a single stone honoring those who served and the four from the area that were lost in WWII.

At some later date, a second stone was added to give the same recognition and honor to those who were lost in Korea and Vietnam.

As recently as 2008 there were only two names on the second monument, one from Korea and one from Vietnam.

As you can see, this has changed significantly.

This painted stone was left, probably by a child, for someone they might have never met.

The small, lovely, park is a very pleasant and calming place to visit and honor these brave patriots.

The memorial is located in the Kirkwood area of Voorhoos, near the intersection of Spruce Drive and Burnt Mills Road near the fire station.

Next time, on the 14th, we'll stay in the slip across the river to New York. Meet me there, as usual, at 9:00am.
