The Plymouth Veterans’ Monument, near the intersection of Main Street (Route 6) and North Main Street, features a monument honoring the two World Wars and Korea, as well as a separate monument commemorating the Vietnam War.  Beneath a dedication, a plaque lists the names of eight residents killed in World War I, 25 killed in World War II and two killed in Korea.  On the left and right sides of the monument, plaques list approximately 200 World War I veterans and about 700 residents who served in World War II. To the immediate left of the Veteran’s Monument, a granite monument honors residents who served in the Vietnam War.  A short walk northeast of the monument, a bronze plaque on a large boulder honors veterans of the two World Wars. The plaque, mounted on the boulder’s southeast face, reads, “Dedicated to the loyal sons and daughters of Plymouth, Connecticut, who served their country during World Wars I and II. Erected through the generosity of Judge Andrew W. Granniss 1953.”

There are several plaques on the Putnam Memorial Bridge, spanning the Quinnebaug River, honoring the Connecticut citizens who served in World War I. On each of the north and south bridge parapets were a set of three plaques, a large central one with an eagle over a scene of infantrymen moving toward a center state seal, and two smaller flanking ones depicting air and sea battles.  The two smaller plaques are missing from the north end of the bridge.

A life-sized bronze statue of a soldier stands on a multi-stage granite base with four large upright rectangular slabs standing on the edge of a stone-paved circular plaza.  On the base is an incised image of a flame burning in a lamp dish.  It is inscribed: “Lest we forget. Within this pedestal is placed a time capsule recording for all time those residents of Stamford who responded to the call, some giving their lives, while serving in our past wars. In future wars, should we be called again, the people of Stamford pledge to preserve and perpetuate this expression of gratitude for such sacrifice.” On two of the slabs are bas-relief carvings: "Freedom from Want" showing two life-sized women, above a dedication reading, “To those who gave their lives in our country’s wars. They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn in the glory of their youth. We will remember them. Erected by the citizens of Stamford, Connecticut”, and "Freedom from Fear" with a woman and a young boy (see pictures gallery).
