Jefferson Memorial Post 3777
This memorial dedicated July 4th. 1968
To the strengthening of our divinely inspired heritage, a true belief in God, and the perseverance of our beloved country to the glory of God and the salvation of mankind.
And to the men who fought the foreign wars of this country on hostile land and sea and in the air.
To the men who gave their last full measure of devotion in armed services of this great republic. Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away, may they rest in peace.
In loving memory of our deceased veterans
Ladies Aux. 3777
