Abstract

Description

The State of New Jersey has taken the initiative to honor and remember our "Greatest Generation" of citizens by creating a memorial in Trenton across from the State House at Veterans Park. Fittingly, the theme for New Jersey's World War II Memorial is "Victory." The memorial honors and pays tribute to the courage and the many sacrifices of the World War II Generation. Over 560,000 New Jerseyans served in the armed forces and the state was an important center of industrial production, military training and related activities in support of the war effort.
