1. Combat Wounded Veterans Memorial
Inscription.  
Dedicated To The Recipients Of The
Nation's Oldest Military Decoration
"The Purple Heart"

My stone is red for
the blood they shed.
The medal I bear
is my country's way
to show they care.
If I could be seen
by all mankind
maybe peace will
come in my lifetime.


All Gave Some — Some Gave All
