Inscription.  

In honor of Lance Corporal James T. Reddington,
Echo Company, Second Battalion, 5th Marines
Killed in Action, March 23, 1967 Vietnam

Jimmy Reddington was a star player for the Elks Club
of the Central City Little League graduating in 1959.

The team spirit and friendships he made playing
Little League carried over into his young adult life.

In Jimmy's all too short but heroic lifetime
the lasting impressions he made on all who knew him
was his loyalty, bravery and his sense of humor.
