Inscription.  
SPC. Jameson Lindskog, the first Pleasanton native to be killed in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom, was awarded the Silver Star for Heroism. On 29 March 2011, he selflessly ran directly into heavy enemy fire in order to provide medical aid to fallen soldiers. Even after being mortally wounded himself, Jameson refused to be airlifted out and continued to provide medical aid and instruction to others until he succumbed to his injury. Jameson was proud to be an EMT and serve his country as an Army Combat Medica in the 101st Airborne.

”Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13
