The New Milford Veterans Committee will soon install a Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Village Green in New Milford.

The monument, designed by Vietnam veteran and New Milford resident Ray Crawford, will be made of black granite with bronze plaques mounted on granite.

Plans will be announced for the dedication in the near future.

The Town of New Milford provided funds to create the monument, which will be added to the All War Monument at the south end of the Green.

Donations to benefit the cost of the monument and installation, and to support veterans’ programs are being accepted.

Donations should be made payable to VFW Post 1672 and mailed to VFW Post 1672 c/o VFW Post Commander Jim Delancy, 11 Avery Road, New Milford, CT 06776.
