November 13, 2005, BELLEVILLE, N.J. -- The Belleville Veterans Council today dedicated the Union Avenue memorial which now bears the names of more than 150 Belleville sons who lost their lives for our freedom in World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

The engraving of the more than 50-year-old monument was sponsored by American Legion - AMVETS - Disabled American Veterans - VFW, and a grant from the Township of Belleville.

Belleville Boy Scout G. Daniel Lukowiak renovated the areas around the monuments, polished the old brass plates and continues to care for the grounds.

Let the people of Belleville forget none of the the 20 sons who died in WWI, the 117 who died in WWII, the 4 who died in Korea, the 12 who died in Vietnam, or those Belleville Sons who died in service during peace time.
