Elkmont in Limestone County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Alabama Combat Infantrymen Monument
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
Freedom has a price
the protected will never know
Erected by Alabama Regiment, Combat Infantryman's Association.
