1. Korean War Marker
Inscription.  
In honored memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice in the preservation of freedom for those oppressed people of South Korea and in memory of all Coffee County veterans who honorably served in the Korean War 1950 - 1953

May our love for freedom and liberty equal their deeds and sacrifice.

Just as tender shoots, killed by chilling frost, these sons of freedom were taken from our midst by the cold ravages of war.

Rest in peace
