This granite memorial is located in the median of Bidwell Parkway on Colonial Circle. It sits between two benches, with a broken stone "sidewalk" in front.

N.Y.N.G. as representative of the boys from Lafayette High School and this section of Buffalo whose service and sacrifice in the World War 1917-1918, were in the cause of security, liberty and peace. Dauntless you fronted death. For me rests to face life as fearlessly."
