Dear Editor:

There is a monument at Journal Square which has deteriorated and each day hundreds of people walk by it and do not even see it. It has become a seat for the homeless and a congregation point for those who just purchased booze in a nearby store. The monument has deep cracks, chipped concrete and several layers of old white paint falling off. This monument is in memory of all those who made the supreme sacrifice in all wars of our country.

The Memorial Triangle Monument is sponsored by the Sgt. Oliver Hobart Post No.1 Legion of Guardsman and Ladies Auxiliary. West End Post No.6590 Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary. The monument is on the same side of the street as the White Castle and across Newark Avenue, just outside the stores in that small group of shops. About ten or twelve years; more or less this monument was moved from the old triangle in the on directly on the opposite side of the boulevard. Can something be done to restore this monument? It is in memory of all those who have made the supreme sacrifice. Can we also make that sacrifice to have it properly restored. How is restoration achieved?? I would love to see it restored by Memorial Day. That would be a fitting gesture to honor once again those who made the supreme sacrifice.

Bob Miller
