Inscription.
[centerpiece][front] The names you see enshrined here are not those of timid men but rather those who gave [right side] their lives for freedom ★ "It is foolish and wrong [rear] to mourn the men who died rather we should thank God that such men lived." General George Patton. [left side]★ We gave our today for your tomorrow ★

[left panels] Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.
