Inscription.

This flag, which once flew over the United States Capitol in Washington D.C., now flies proudly over Main Street, Stillwater, Minnesota.

It is placed as a memorial to all Veterans, who in times of wars and in times of peace, throughout the history of our nation, have answered the call to defend our country. We honor our friends, our neighbors, and our loved ones for their service.

This memorial was dedicated on Veterans Day, on the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh month, in the year of our Lord, two thousand eleven.
