1. Purple Heart Memorial
Inscription.  
Dedicated to all men and women
wounded in all our wars.

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

 
Erected by The Department of Virginia Military Order of the Purple Heart.
