1. The Greatest Generation Marker
Inscription.  

This monument, honoring our Greatest Generation,
is made of the same granite used in the construction
of the National WW II Memorial
———————————————————
[balance is inscribed on ground-level foundation]
Kershaw granite was quarried for its superior strength and durability.
Representing a unique time in American history, the unwavering material
reflects the fortitude and courage of United States veterans. The quiet
beauty of its calm surface is a reminder that WWII included every
soldier and citizen. The foundation for this tribute is deep, solid
and will not bow to our enemies.

Let us be humble. Freedom is a gift.
Dedicated in honor of WWII veterans May 27, 2006

 
Erected 2006.
