The Swedesboro World War I honor roll plaque has recently been remounted on a consolidated war memorial brick wall next to the Borough Hall.  The bronze plaque is topped by an eagle with wings outstretched standing on a bas relief depiction of a boulder which reads, "For God and Country."  The boulder image is flanked by US soldiers on the right battling a group of enemy soldiers with cannons on the left side.  The plaque reads, "In Grateful Tribute to those of our community who served under the colors for God and Humanity in the World War." 

The list of local men who served comprises the rest of the long, rectangular plaque.  The names of those who died in the war are marked by a star.
