Military Veterans Memorial

Kyle Buck

The name of the Monument I chose for my project is the Military Veterans Monument located on Plainfield Avenue in South Plainfield, NJ. The monument depicts all of the names of military veterans who served in any foreign war and were residents of South Plainfield at the time they were shipped out. What surprised me most about this monument is that my grandfather’s name is included on the monument, and as to this point in time I was unaware of this fact. Upon further exploration of the subject I found out from my parents that my grandfather briefly served in the War in Vietnam as a member of the Navy. This fascinated me because during his lifetime he never spoke about his experiences with war.
