The two memorials are made of polished black granite arranged in a serpentine wall, about 6 ft. high and nearly 100 ft. long. The wall contains individual squares on which are engraved the names of veterans who died during each war. The names are listed chronologically by year.
The memorials are graced by two poems:
Long ago, far off,
We fell in fields of honor.Remember us now.
Grieve not for lost youth.
Graved in memory and stone
we dwell in your dreams.
