Inscription.
(South Face of Memorial)
You a veteran of this
Old town or pilgrim
From far away looking
For some tranquility...
Here you may become
Silent in honor of those
Who have served...
No one is a stranger at
This revered place where
Your God as a loving
Father is waiting only
for you...

(North Face of Memorial)
Guardians of peace...
Heroes of war...
You are the strength
Of America...
You are the few who
Defended the many...
The selfless who keep
Us free...
You are the vets,
The best...
We shall always be
Thankful...

From a grateful
Community...
