short of religion, is more important to me than freedom. I cannot imagine living life in a totalitarian state where individual responsibility is scorned. But to protect freedom, at times we are called individually to make a stand. The men you are about to honor made that stand, and I am eternally grateful. God gave us life, but man makes us free.

I never got to shake the hands of these men who gave their lives for my freedom, dying a lonely death in a distant land far from their home and loved ones. The least I can do is try to see that their names are engraved in stone for all posterity.

These are the words of the anonymous donor who made this monument possible.
