Dedicated May 25, 1992
Moore County Post 192, American Legion
Bill H. Thomas, Commander • Glen Thomas, Vice Commander
Harlan Sanders, Financial Officer • Curtis Posey, Adjutant

The broken column represents those who have fallen and that our Earthly ties with them are forever broken. The massive cube of granite represents the strength of those who remain must have to withstand the loss of loved ones. The quotation “The last full measure of devotion” is from the Gettysburg Address. The inscription “We cannot forget, we must not forget, we dare not forget” was inspired by Truman Ashby of Lynchburg.

The names of those Moore Countians who gave their lives in the service of our country are forever engraved on this monument and in our hearts with the prayer that there will never have to be another added.
