Inscription.  Dedicated to the memory of all Filipino and Filipino-Americans who served, fought and died in service to the Armed Forces of the United States of America… From the mountains and tunnels of Bataan and Corregidor to the infamous Capas Death March; from jungles of Mindanao, to the shores of Leyte; from the frozen landscapes of Korea and rice paddies of Vietnam to the crags of Afghanistan and the shifting sands of Iraqi desert… Your service and sacrifice for the preservation of freedom will stand forever as a testament to the Filipino- American concept of liberty that we will never forget. Our duty is to remember.
 
Erected 2004 by Filipino American Veterans of Hampton Roads.
