Inscription.  
A key factor in America's World War II success was the efficient mobilization of its forces at home. With its motto, "Do what you can with what you have," the York Plan was a 15-point program that organized manufacturers to work cooperatively to maximize production. Created in York and adopted across the country, the York Plan was hailed for its ingenuity and contributions to the positive outcome of the war.
