Dedication ceremony held at Veterans’ Cemetery

Middletown — A dedication ceremony was held for the 43d Infantry Division Memorial Monument Sept. 22 at the State Veterans’ Cemetery. After a groundbreaking in August 2011, the monument has now been finished to honor the heroism of the soldiers who fought against the Japanese at Munda, Aitape and Luzon in World War II. Many of the division’s primary units were from Connecticut, including the 43d Headquarters and Military Police from Hartford, the 169th Infantry Regiment, the 102d Infantry Regiment and the 192d Field Artillery Regiment.
