Freedom is not free. Sometimes, it comes at a very high cost.
Located on the Black Horse Pike (Route 168) at 7th Avenue in Glendora NJ, this monument is honors those who served the United States of America in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. There are also monuments located at the Stetser-Lamartine American Legion Post #281 and at Choimer-Trace VFW Post #8714 nearby.
