Inscription.  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 to-day that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.
 
Erected by Chapter 264 Military Order of the Purple Heart.
