The monument consists of a cannon atop a pedestal. Around the base of the pedestal are bronze plaques with the names of World War I veterans from Norwalk. Each plaque also includes the title “1917 The World War 1919” and the quote “We honor those who do us honor.” The plaque under the barrel of the cannon memorializes the 45 Norwalk residents who died during World War I.
