Chester in Morris County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Chester Area Veterans Monument
With faith and courage they left their homes and committed themselves to the horrors of armed conflict, many sacrificing their lives as part of the cost to achieve peace. Through their actions they leave a legacy that is our responsibility to preserve. That legacy is a free nation, where liberty and justice are more than just words, where anyone's hopes and dreams can become reality, and where the peace and serenity of a small child's sleep are not disturbed by the clamor of war.
