This is a granite monument honoring Gaetano Del Giudice, a World War I veteran, a founder of the American Legion, and musician.

The thick stone is very roughly hewn into a square with a rounded top edge and is balanced on a similarly finished rectangular base. A just-out-of-round circle is carved about an inch deep into the monolith face. Inside and near the top of the circle is engraved with the outline of a French Horn and the text:

GAETANO DEL GIUDICE
THE MAN WITH THE HORN
SEPT. 18, 1887 - MAY 9, 1972
VETERAN OF WORLD WAR I
FOUNDER OF THE
AMERICAN LEGION
