Inscription.
This monument erected by
Greenwood Cemetery Society
July 4, 1958
to honor the brave youth of
Columbia Falls, who so
unselfishly entered our
Armed Force to help
Keep America Free

They left their families and their friends
to fight for their country dear
We salute this valiant band
the noble saviours of our land
They shall be honored for many a year
