1. Morristown Military Memorial
Inscription.
For God and Country
Lest we forget
Marines * Army Navy * Air Force

This monument is dedicated to the men and women of the greater Morristown area who have honorably served and fought for our country from the American Revolution to Desert Storm. It is only fitting and proper that Morristown, “The Military Capital of the Colonies,” should be the first to have a monument listing all the military actions of the United States of America to document the human sacrifices made by her people.
