This monument, located in Main Memorial Park in downtown Clifton was sculpted by Gaetano Cecere & designed by architect William E. Brown. It consists of a light gray granite shaft, square in cross-section. At the base of the shaft, a bronze female figure with a full-length robe stands carrying a circular shield with an eagle & star design in her left hand and a sword in her right.
The shaft itself is crowned with a bronze urn of classical design. The sides of the shaft are incised with laurel wreaths. Names of veterans are listed above the wreath.
