1. Yuba County Veterans Memorial Marker
Inscription. We as a community have committed ourselves to honor our Veterans…the living and the dead.

We must embrace the fact that we are the benefactors of their sacrifices. We must also remember to honor the Veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice – their lives! Their names must not be lost nor forgotten.

Our community has the responsibility to cherish their sacrifice to us – Their Gift ensuring our Freedom. For every thing we do and every thing we have we owe to them.

Have we not inherited their hopes and their dreams? And are their hopes and dreams not fulfilled through us? In a greater sense are we not their living memorials – We who enjoy the gift of freedom purchased with their blood?

How can we continue in all that we have by forgetting how we received it? Did they not trade all of their futures for our present?

It is so, with much resolve and God’s help we dedicate these memorials to their memory.
”Such is the past .. so be the future.”
- Daniel Logue, Jr. – Chairman
All Veterans Memorial Committee of Yuba and Sutter Counties
