Staten Island Military History Trail
This trail captures the courage, sacrifice, and diversity of Staten Island's military heritage. From the 1700s through the 21st century, Staten Islanders of all races, ethnicities, creeds, and socioeconomic backgrounds have participated in America's military conflicts. Staten Islanders also did their part on the home front to support the troops or to voice their desire for peace. The sacrifices made by Staten Island's veterans are remembered in numerous memorials and monuments around the island. At the base of the flagpole at Paulo Park in St. George reads the remembrance: "To the Veterans of Staten Island who have served in times of war and peace we give thanks to God and remember those men and women, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who are unaccounted for, in pursuit of Freedom."
