This World War I monument consists of a life-size statue of a doughboy standing at attention in full uniform with the barrel of a rifle in his right hand and the butt of the rifle on the ground. The figure is set upon a granite plinth, square in cross-section, with an angled top, resting on a rusticated granite slab.
A bronze plaque mounted on the front of the plinth contains the names of local soldiers from Belford, Port Monmouth & New Monmouth, NJ who served in the war. The monument sits on a low mound to heighten its prominence. It was purchased from LL Manning & Son, a Plainfield, NJ monument company.
