1. United in Memory
Inscription.  

We honor these veterans who served to defend what we believe is right and remember the sacrifice of those who have gone before us. We are grateful for their service to protect our freedom. Secure civilization and ensure the survival of our American way of life. As we are united in memory of another date that will forever stand alongside December 7, 1942... September 11, 2001. We remember that day our people were brutally and suddenly attacked by evil terrorists who took cruel and heartless advantage of the freedoms guaranteed by our nation. Once again this attack on freedom itself has fired the American spirit with a determination to fight the evil in the world and the need to remain ever vigilant against it. In all that lies before us. May God grant us wisdom and may he watch over the United States of America.

We salute all these Veterans for their service to our great country and to their families whose lives were changed forever.

2. Allen War Veterans Memorial - Civil War and Spanish American War
We learn, we remember, and we struggle to grasp, even if only to a small degree, what led boys, med, fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons to fight and die in the fragile yet firm hope that their cause, whatever that may have been, would prevail.
