The memorial features a bronze plaque inset into a rough-surfaced granite boulder that is topped with a bronze eagle. Dedicated on Sunday, May 26, 1935, it lists the names of ten men who died in action during World War I and 118 veterans of that war. The veterans were the first members of what became Post 14 of the Polish Legion of American Veterans (PLAV). Post 14 was named after Pvt. Eugeniusz Jablonowski, who was killed in action on July 18, 1918, and is listed on the memorial as one of the ten dead.

The members of Post 14, made up of men and women of all ethnic groups, continue to maintain both the World War I memorial and the World War II/Korea/Vietnam memorial located in adjacent Pulaski Park.

The Syracuse Polish-American Veterans Documentation Project seeks to match the names with biographies and images of those listed on the World War I memorial. The project team hopes to add more to the website by adding the biographies and images of those listed on the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War memorial.
