1. American Gold Star Mothers Memorial
Inscription.  
In Honor of The American Gold Star Mothers for their Sacrifice, Service, and Patriotism

A Mother's tears were shed today
For a battle long ago.
Her precious gift to a warrior son
Whose fate......she'll never know

Not Heroes shiny medals
For courage through their fears
No ribboned badge of honor
Can match a Mother's Tears
