Creator: Raymond Averill Porter, noted Boston sculptor
Monument elements: Concrete base, Milford pink granite shaft and bronze relief panels.
Cost: Funded by the City of Berlin, NH in the amount of $6,720.
Original location name: Grand Trunk Railway station on Mount Forist Street in Depot Square.

On April 29th, 1919, Company L of the 26th Division assembled on last time at this location upon
returning from their service in France, after which they were Honorably Discharged, but not all of
those 1.040 men who left returned home. 34 men Made The Supreme Sacrifice in the service of
their country defending liberty. The names of those who’s served and those that sacrificed appear
here for all to see, remember and thank for what they did. When I see a perfect example of a
community War Memorial I think of the country song, All Gave Some And Some Gave All.
