Inscription.  

This Veterans' Walkway is founded in the deep belief that all who have honorably served our nation deserve a lasting tribute from their neighbors and fellow countrymen.

Thousands of our area's selfless men and women departed from — and returned to — the very platform upon which you stand. Those whose names you see here have our deepest thanks. Their service and their sacrifice shall not go unremembered nor unappreciated.
