(First Dais)
Inscription.  Within these walls, sheltered with pride and honor, are our Veterans who have lost their lives. Some lost their lives in service to our Country on or off the battlefield. Others fulfilled their service and returned home to live out their lives.

No matter which branch of service they served in during peace time or war, all Veterans are joined as one by the fierce sense of pride and patriotism they have for the United States of America.

Because of their sacrifices through their dedicated service, we have become the greatest Nation on earth.

Let this Memorial always reflect the great pride and heartfelt thanks we feel for these special men and women who have served us so well.
 
Erected 2007 by Daugherty-Hamilton American Legion Post 234.
