Inscription.  

We, the members of the 64th Fighter Interceptor Squadron,
ask you to pause to honor our brothers who have flown
their last mission; each committed to the common defense
of our nation, dedicated to stand against the tyranny
over the minds of men. To those who were lost at home
and on foreign soil, we stop to give the airman's
final salute. May fortune favor the bold.
