Inscription.  
Dedicated To All The Men And
Women In All Wars
Combat Wounded Veterans

My stone is red for
the blood they shed.
The medal I bear
is my country's way
to show they care.
If I could be seen
by all mankind
maybe peace will
come in my lifetime.

We few. We happy few. We band of brothers for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother
