There are two separate memorials in this small park along the waterfront in New Haven. The first is a black granite slab on which is engraved the years 1959-75 and shows 3 figures – one is a female army nurse and the others are soldier/marines. The center figure stands with only his back showing. This memorial states it is dedicated to all those from New Haven, East Haven, West Haven, North Haven, Hamden, Orange and Woodbridge who served during the war. In addition a large “V” on the water’s edge is inscribed with the 18 names of those from the New Haven area who lost their lives during the war as well as those three were listed as M.I.A. Dedicated in 1988, the memorial was sculpted by Kenneth Polanski and Frank Pannenborg.
