During World War II (WWII), local companies in Greenfield, Massachusetts, displayed great pride and patriotism in their efforts on the home front. When their workers made the supreme sacrifice, efforts were made to remember them. This memorial from the Greenfield Tap & Die Corporation (GTD), recognizes employees killed in the war. The company was the largest maker of gages, taps, and dies in the world. Three shifts worked around the clock seven days a week producing these measuring devices that insured an accurate fit for all parts produced anywhere in the country. The small town of Greenfield, located in a semi-rural area, had a surprisingly large concentration of industries vital to the war effort, and employed an estimated 7,000 workers.
