Long Description:
On the town green in Wilbraham there is a memorial to the veterans of the town. On top of a slightly tapered concrete pedestal there is a highly polished, jet black, earth globe which is about 2' in diameter. The landmasses of the globe are accurately etched and labelled. The oceans are labelled as well. The globe enables viewers to get an accurate idea of the scope of our troop deployments. The pedestal carries a dedication on the front and the donors name on the back.
