    At the height of World War II, as the United States was island hopping in the Pacific Theater, and the Allies were invading Italy, Chandler residents constructed a memorial to their friends and family serving in the military.  Located in the downtown park, the memorial featured the names of everyone from Chandler and the surrounding areas serving in the war effort.  At the dedication to the memorial, the ChandlerArizonan remarked that “For those whose names will appear on the Roll of Honor, it will carry the assurance that the community will continue its support of the war effort – and their names will be proof that their home town will not forget them – ever.”
