Construction of the WWII Memorial Park. The Memorial centers on a 12-foot-high, one ton statue of Victory, holding a laurel wreath in one hand and a sword in the other. The statue stands beneath a copper dome supported by granite pillars. Around her are six more pillars, one for each branch of the service and the merchant marine, bearing the names of New Jersey’s World War II Medal of Honor recipients from each branch. On curved walls at the edge of the memorial are images of the war and time lines. Behind Victory is a statue of a soldier charging forward, and behind him is a sculpture of a rifle with a helmet on top, a battlefield grave marker.
