The American Legion Centennial Memorial was dedicated on Veterans Day, 2016. The project, created and sponsored by American Legion Post 76, honors all veterans and recognizes a century of service of its members. The American Legion was created in the aftermath of World War I by a group of veterans from the American Expeditionary Force, who convened in Paris shortly after the war ended. The memorial marks both the centennial anniversary of the conflict’s end on November 11, 1918, and the formation of the American Legion in 1919. The memorial design, created by Pietro del Fabro, is based on a program of poetry fragments in stone.
