Inscription.  

The bald eagle is a visible symbol of the pride and commitment that the people of Texas have for their country. Our ancestors who fought in the American Revolution and for the Republic of Texas instilled in us a feeling of pride and responsibility to serve.

After the Civil War, the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Army brought law and order to the Texas Plains. Many Terry County citizens have served their nation honorably in every major conflict involving the United States. Brigadier General Ray Brownfield, Jr. is a distinguished representative of those citizens.

Sculpture by Thomas E. Prochnow in honor of Albert Ray Brownfield, Jr.
A gift from his children
