Long Description:
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. The inscription on the memorial reads: "This Memorial is dedicated to the memory of John A. Boechat, 108th Inf. 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."

A small plaque added on the back side of the memorial reads: "Lafayette High School honors all veterans who served in World War II, Korean Conflict, Vietnam, and all other peacekeeping forces. Class of '89"
