Inscription.  
In war's grim hour that tested all,
Among the first they heard the call.
In many lands, far-flung and wide,
They bravely fought and bravely died.
A grateful nation mourns their loss,
A sacrifice in freedom's cause.
In alien climes their bodies lie
'Neath tropic sun and Arctic sky.
But here they shall forever be,
Enshrined in hallowed memory

Dedicated to the men and women of Paw Paw, W. Va. and surrounding area who fought in World War II
 
Erected by The Paw Paw Veterans Memorial Committee.
