Viva Liberation Monument — 1949     
The monument commemorates the liberation of
Europe by Allied Forces in World War II. It is
a replica of markers placed every kilometer along
the 888-mile “Road to Liberty” the Allies followed
in fighting that began on the beaches of Normandy
in France and led to Bastogne in Belgium. A time
capsule was stored within the monument at its
dedication on Armistice Day in 1949 by the 40
& 8 veterans organization and it was opened as
instructed “Nov. 11, 2000 A.D. by the oldest
surviving member of the 40/8”.
