Windsor Connecticut Gold Star Casualties of World War II

History and Location

This World War II Gold Star Memorial was constructed about 1950. It is a bronze plaque mounted on a large white stone with the names of thirty-five Windsor men who lost their life during World War II.  Historically, a “Gold Star” flag was displayed in the windows of family homes or businesses to honor a family member who died in war. This practice was begun by American Gold Star Mothers, a national organization that was born in 1928. This memorial is located on the Windsor Connecticut north Town Green, along Broad Street, not far from the Windsor Connecticut World War I Roll of Honor Memorial.
