Memorial street signs honor fallen Belleville Sons

Belleville, N.J., Memorial Street Signs

In June 2016, Belleville Township Council passed a resolution to dedicate certain streets in town to servicemen who hailed from the municipality.

As we add these signs, we are trying to contact relatives of these Belleville sons to be present at the ceremony. If you are family or know of family of these fallen soldiers, please contact us.

The township continues to add street signs in honor of our fallen sons. For more information about dedication ceremonies, email  Tom Grolimond, chairman of the Recreation and Cultural Affairs Advisory Council.


These young men of Belleville, New Jersey, paid with their lives to prove "freedom is not free." Our intent is to honor their sacrifice and preserve the memory of those Belleville sons who died in service to our country.
