This memorial is dedicated to the thousands of men and women of many nations who served on the nearby airfields and walked and enjoyed these ancient streets of Newark during the war years 1939-1945. In the morn they came and passed a few quiet hours. In the evening twilight their aircraft in countless numbers circled above the town and surrounding countryside climbing higher and higher. In the blackness of the night they fought and died, these brave young men who fell from the sky. 55,573 airmen died in the night skies over Europe many have graves known only to God.
