This monument consists of a granite doughboy statue standing at parade rest, atop a tall rusticated grey granite plinth. The front is inscribed with the words, "Lest We Forget." The uniformed figure holds his rifle in front with hands grasping the barrel.
The monument was fabricated by LL Manning & Son, a Plainfield, NJ monument maker responsible for several of the state's WWI memorials.
The monument is placed in a newly built veterans plaza on the banks of Raritan Bay.
