New London Dedicates Vets’ Park

It took several years to finish…but there’s now a memorial park to veterans in New London.


Local vets and many other residents gathered yesterday(Sat) to dedicate the new spot, whose visitors will eventually be greeted by granite statues of two soldiers…one male and one female, both from New London…now being made in China.


What’s already there are six granite tablets, which will be engraved with the names of more than 300 New London veterans…living & dead…a gold brick & concrete sign…red & gold paving stones in the ground…several flag poles in a circle…and a bronze statue in the middle, consisting of a helmet on top of a rifle, standing between two boots…and representing a fallen soldier.
