The project that began more than 15 years ago, to identify and remember the fallen soldiers from Belleville, N.J., is having long-term effects. In nearly two years, Belleville has dedicated more than two dozen street signs to fallen soldiers from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam War and the Cold War.
Our research continues as we learn more about these Belleville Sons from their families at street sign dedications. Order your updated Belleville Sons Honor Roll.
