Belleville, New Jersey 

Memorial Park, Union Avenue, Belleville, NJLet us in Belleville forget none of the 118 who died in World War II, 22 who died in World War I, 5 who died in the Korean War era, 11 who died in Vietnam, three who died in the Civil War, two who died in service during peace time, and two who died in the American Revolution.

These young men of Belleville, New Jersey, paid with their lives to prove “freedom is not free.” Our intent is to honor their sacrifice and preserve the memory of those Belleville sons who died in service to our country. Belleville lost three police officers, one fire captain, and a firefighter died doing their duty.
