Veterans World War II Memorial at Veterans Park

WWII Memorial Home
General Information

World War II was the greatest military victory for the United States. It was an effort in which every citizen contributed and had a stake in the outcome, along the front lines and the home front. It was a war neither the United States nor our Allies could afford to lose.

Today, America is rapidly saying goodbye to our "Greatest Generation" of citizens. The State of New Jersey has taken the initiative to honor and remember them by creating a memorial in Trenton across from the State House at Veterans Park.

WW II Memorial

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 as it celebrates the greatest victory our country has ever known.
