Veterans Memorial Park and Boulevard
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Memorial. Located just off Route 72 in Bristol, Connecticut, the Memorial Boulevard and 25 acre Veterans' Park, is one of the largest American wars tributes in the Nation. On Armistice Day November 11, 1921, the City of Bristol officially dedicated this section of roadway The Memorial Boulevard. On the Boulevard, the first memorial erected was the World War I Monument dedicated on April 19, 1924, to honor World War I veterans. Through the years in conjunction with the Veteran's Society, US Military and the city's old West Cemetery next to the Veteran's Park and Boulevard has erected 18 monuments dedicated in memory to veterans lost in America's conflicts. In addition to the World War I Monument, there are memorials to honor the Revolutionary War, Spanish American War, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War and the new Civil War Monument unveiled on May 28, 2011. The Boulevard which is lined with 25 oak trees on each side, also includes a National Guard Memorial, gardens with service dedication bronze plaques, stones, a time capsule and a Tribute Walkway with thousands of bricks listing veterans names. The Boulevard is closed to traffic several times each year for public holiday ceremonies and Veterans' Park was the site of the traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in August 1998. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
