More than a Three-Day Weekend
Sometimes its easy to lose the meaning of Memorial Day in the midst of our everyday lives. Our thanks to all those who put themselves in harm's way and exemplify the essential quality and goodness of our nation.
The inscription reads:
Dedicated to America's role of preserving freedom and rescuing the oppressed, this monument, by Natan Rapoport, of an American solider carrying a World War II concentration camp survivor was gifted to the State of New Jersey through the generosity of thousands of people of good will: May 30, 1985.
