This monument, dedicated to the people of Neptune who served in World War I, consists of a stone figure, column & base. A doughboy stands in uniform atop the column. The three-sided base is marked by inscribed bronze plaques. Three pedestals project from the corners each topped by a cannon.
The monument was purchased from LL Manning & Son, a Plainfield, NJ monument firm. It was dedicated on Memorial Day 1920 by Rev. Edward Mount of West Grove ME Church.
