The ALL VETERANS MEMORIAL is New Jersey's premier veteran's memorial located at Turkey Brook Park in Mount Olive, New Jersey and touted for its distinctive designs and calming landscape. The unique ceremonial ground is the host to historically denoted military ceremonies and vigils.
The shape or footprint of the memorial was inspired by the Congressional Medal of Honor which is highest military honor to be earned from the United States and is awarded for personal acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. Because the medal is presented "in the name of Congress", it is often ... intended to represent the gratitude of the American people. The AVM's STAR or Pentagon Platform represents the five branches of services, equally divided. The area consists of pavers that denote the honorable military service of all who served during war or peacetime.
The War Dog Memorial features a statue, among others, of Sgt. Stubby, hero dog of World War I. See pictures gallery.
