Inscription.
To Honor All Combat
Infantrymen

We were boys and we were young
We became men on that hill we overrun
Some of us lived, many of us died
For a moment with us abide
And join in prayer with me
To honor those of the combat infantry.
The Combat Infantrymen's
Association

Freedom has a price
The protected will never know.
