The New Fairfield Veterans’ Memorial, located on Pembroke Road (Route 37) just north of the intersection with Brush Hill Road (Route 39), was dedicated on September 20, 1997.
The monument features two granite tablets, a flagpole and a dozen markers listing the country’s major wars.
The east tablet bears a dedication reading, “To those who fought and served to preserve our freedom, this plaque is dedicated to your brave and courageous acts.”
Nine residents are listed for the Civil War; one for World War I; three for World War II; two for Korea; and three for Vietnam.
The green also features a ship’s anchor and a number of benches inscribed with the United States seal.
