Memorial is located on the City Park Ave. side of park, just east of the Pizzati Gate. Placed by the American Legion, date unknown, although the website listed below (page 7) dates the memorial from "the 1920's". Honors the Army, Navy, Marines and Aviation. Very nice relief work done on the top of the memorial. 2 dedications are on the sides that state:
