Dedicated to the Valiant American Expeditionary Forces who embarked from this point to participate in the World War 1917-1918.

Erected by Hoboken Assembly Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus May 30, 1925.

On the other side of the boulder is another marker honoring this American Embarkation point. It reads:
Here marks the site of the Point of Embarkation for the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I
From this location millions of young dedicated Americans bravely sailed to foreign battlefields and helped save America and the world for democracy.
Many never returned from this struggle, and it is in their hallowed memory that this marker is installed by the Hudson Count Board of Chosen Freeholders, 1978
