1. Dallas County World War I & II Memorial
Inscription.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay
down his life for his friends. St. John, 15-13


Erected in grateful humility to the enduring
memory of those of Dallas County whose
names appear hereon who made the supreme
sacrifice in two World Wars. No more will
they answer the call to arms...no more will
they heroic deeds do! For they slumber on in
eternal peace on sacred American soil...the
poppy fields of Flanders...the vast expanses
of the Pacific and the historic beaches of
Normandy.
✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯
To their memory this monument is humbly dedicated,
with the determined pledge of their comrades in
arms to perpetuate and protect the American way of
life for which they so valiantly died.
