Inscription.

In the U.S. Army of long ago, the mule-skinner was the wagon driver who was dedicated to the job of getting supplies through to the fighting men in the field. The Mule-Skinner Club of St. John's Military School was organized in 1967.

Through the support of the Mule-Skinners, the purposes for which St. John's was founded will never falter.

This sculpture, dedicated 14 August 1987, is a gift of the Mule-Skinner Club to commemorate St. John's Centennial.

Col. Keith G. Duckers, President

 
Erected 1987 by SJMS Mule-Skinners Club.
