About the Memorial
- While there are many war memorials throughout the County, are all specific to a particular war or town from the particular era in which they were built. No town has a memorial for all wars fought.
- Consequently, some war dead are not honored anywhere in the County, and the County Executive decided to remedy that to ensure every Ulster County serviceman killed or missing in action . . . from all wars . . . is honored at a Memorial.
- The monument you see today in front of the County Office building is the culmination of that initiative . . . to fund, research and design a fitting Memorial.
- The Memorial Design was conceptualized by a cross-section of Veterans from around the County. Name research was painstakingly done by a volunteer committee of Veterans and community members.
- Key design elements include:
- Five granite stones, arranged in a Pentagon . . . a historical symbol of leadership.
- A Battle Cross/Marker in the center, universally known to represent the tragedy of a fallen service member in battle.
- Prominence in front of the County Office Building, while also displaying a sense of enclosure to preserve a solemn separation from foot traffic.
