Inscription.  As you walk around this statue, you can see a long list of battlefields where Marines have put their lives on the line for the sake of the United States. Some of these places you may know well. Others may reveal unknown chapters of American history to you.

By tradition, the Corps determines when to add battle honors to this memorial.

"There's no such thing as a crowded battlefield. Battlefields are lonely places."
—General Alfred M. Gray, 1984
