This memorial park is dedicated to the memory of the 12 men of Jermyn who made the supreme sacrifice for their country. In 1920, 12 trees, which line the roadway, were planted as a living remembrance for their immortal sacrifice. The replica rock depicts the 1918 carving of Victor Slawinsky's Memory of an American Doughboy - Spirit of an American Soldier. The original rock carving is located on the old road to Hosie Dam & the mining ghost town of Edgerton.  The inscription on the rocks reads:

On November 11, 2005, the park was rededicated, continuing the memory and providing a peaceful river park.
