Inscription.  This sculpture is dedicated to all my Navy shipmates, Marine, Army and Coast Guard buddies, and allies of all faiths who served in the Guadalcanal Campaign from August 7, 1942 to February 17, 1943. These brave men and women were part of the first landing in World War II pertaining to the Pacific Theatre of Operations.
