Swedesboro-Woolwich Memorial Wall

The memorial plaques located in front of Borough Hall in Swedesboro are dedicated to the memory of the men and women from this area who served in the armed forces during World War I, World War II, the Korean Conflict and the Vietnam War.

A total of 695 area residents served, while 29 made the ultimate sacrifice.

World War I, the “war to end all wars and bring lasting peace,” saw 123 Swedesboro area residents serve in 1917 and 1918, 7 of which never returned. World War II saw approximately 440 area residents serve between 1941 and 1945, 15 of which gave their lives in service of our country.

The Korean Conflict and the Vietnam War saw a total of 132 residents serve. A fighter pilot and heavy bomber crewman never returned from Korea, while five made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

In grateful recognition of all the men and women who served our country, from the Revolutionary War to present, we pay special thanks to those who sacrificed their lives so this great nation may endure.
