Inscription.

(( Front of Base ))

“Lest We Forget”
Those from Blackford County who
answered their Country’s call in the
World War,
Apr. 6th 1917 to Nov. 11th 1918.

“Our Boys”


(( Obverse of Base ))

When the Service Flag has faded,
and the hands that it caressed
have been folded calm and peaceful
on each Mother’s loving breast,

Then, “the Torch they passed unto us“
we will bear forever on,
with our lives we will defend it – we,
like they, will “Carry On.”
