WWII Memorial

It is long gone but there was once a memorial to local veterans of Worl War Two.. It was mainly for men and women from Yardville Heights and Lakeside who served in World War II.  I think it was located on the Yardville Elementary School grounds at the foot of Highland Avenue.  I can recognize some of the names even though it is not a great photo. Considering the small population of those two areas, it is obvious that a high percentage of us were in the service.

There was also another such memorial in Yardville where the Yardville National Bank was located on South Broad Street. This looks like a fancier version.

I don't know if there was nay ovelap of names since the Yardville Memorial is a bit hard to read.
