In Memory of All Danbury
World War II Veterans

This memorial is in honor of all of World War II Veterans who were involved in the fight for the freedom of America and the free world.

Whether they fought in the Pacific or European theater, they face a resolute and often brutal enemy; yet they possessed the inner strength and courage that kept them going on the beaches at Normandy, in the deserts of North Africa and on the islands of the South Pacific.

The actions of those who were called to duty were probably best described by the words of Admiral Nimitz: "Uncommon valor was a common virtue."

The names that appear in this memorial garden made the ultimate sacrifice.
