Monument Description

This monument honoring Cape Elizabeth residents serving in the Armed forces in eight wars (including WWI) is a rectangular granite slab set on three smaller granite steps. It is set in an area visible from Scott Dyer Road, and is approached by a small stone pathway, and surrounded by plantings (flowers and bushes). There is a flagpole with an American flag flying behind the monument. Inscriptions are found on both faces of the granite memorial--the front of the monument features an eagle perched on a bundle of sticks and situated in between two strands of wheat and a series of eight stars, while the back of the monument lists the wars residents have served in.
