1. Gold Star Mothers Marker
Inscription.  
In Honor Of
The American Gold Star Mothers
For Their Sacrifice,
Service, and
Patriotism
A mother’s tears were shed today
For a battle long ago.
Her precious gift to a warrior son
Whose fate …. she’ll never know

Not Heroes shiny medals
For courage through their fears
No ribboned badge of honor
Can match a Mother’s Tears
    Marsha B. Megehe
