Inscription.  
Front:
To Honor All Combat
Infantrymen

We were boys and we were young
We became men on that hill we overran
Some of us lived, many of us died
For a moment with us abide
and join in prayer with me
to honor those of the combat infantry


Back:
Dedicated to all Alabama
combat infantrymen

Freedom has a price
the protected will never know

 
Erected by Alabama Regiment, Combat Infantryman's Association.
