War Memorial Committee
The Palmyra War Memorial Committee plans to update the memorial and to honor veterans or members of the US armed forces who enlisted from Palmyra, New Jersey and were awarded the GWOTEM, Afghanistan Campaign or Iraq Campaign medals since September 11, 2001.
Contact Tom McElwee at (856) 296-7326 or P.O. Box 118, Palmyra, NJ 08065 or Sandy Veitenheimer at firstname.lastname@example.org with documentation of service by September 30, 2013.
On four marble monuments, the Palmyra War Memorial honors the 32 men from the Borough of Palmyra who died in service of their country between 1918 and 2010. Brass plates list the names of 1,440 men and women from Palmyra who served in the armed forces during World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm.
Stories in Stone: Each of the thirty-two names carved in stone represents a family member or friend who died far from Palmyra defending our country and its values. Other websites link us to these fallen comrades.
