A Tribute
to give our military veterans
the honor and respect due them

They hit the line and they hit it hard
They ran the ends of fame
They passed and kicked to distant goals
When they starred in competitive games
But when they heard the bugles of war that called
To a much rougher and tougher test
And now they sleep under foreign sods
The stars who have earned their rest
They played the game the good old way
That led the bayonets thrust
They carried the charge to the final goal
Which covers their golden dust

Along the walls are the names of men and women,
from this area; who served in the armed forces and
risk their lives in our behalf during WWII.
On bronze plaques are the names of those we remember;
that served and gave their lives for us.
