[ right plaque ]
Guilford was home to over five hundred men and women who served in every branch of the United States armed forces. During the period of December 7, 1941, to September 11, 1945. Our citizens fought and endured in every battle on land and sea and in the air, from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay in the Pacific Theater and from North Africa to Berlin in the European Theater. Scores of our men were wounded in combat. Sixteen lost their lives. We, the citizens of Guilford, establish this memorial as a place of reflection for future generations, that they forever remember the sacrifices and services made by their forebears during the period of our history known as World War II.
