Unidentified Sculptor. "Belleville War Memorial"

The Belleville War Memorial in Belleville, New Jersey is composed of a sculpture Lady Liberty knighting a soldier and a wall with pillars that lists citizens from Belleville and Nutley that have been lost to the many wars. At the same time, the wall remembers those that have been lost to the attacks of 9/11 and has a fountain in front. The sculpture is alleged to be date to the 1940's and that is why there is serious natural damage to the sculpture. To date, there is no information as to who the sculptor might be. Any information on the sculptor of this sculpture would be much appreciated. If you know some information on the sculptor, please leave a comment.
