Inscription.
In grateful memory we dedicate
this memorial to those from
Red River County who died in
the service of their country.
They stand in the unbroken line of
patriots who were willing to die so

increase its blessings.

Freedom lives and through it
these patriots live
in a way which humbles
the understanding of mankind.
