The bronze plaque set in stonework
Inscription.  
A Nation that
honors it’s Veterans is
a nation dedicated
to preservation
of a freedom won
by the sacrifice of life
itself. These emblems
are appropriately
dedicated to the valiant
dead of the armed
forces who ventured far,
fought bravely, and gave
their lives to preserve
freedom and liberty
in our land. Together
they lie here in mute
testimony to the manner
in which they lived,
worked and fought to
achieve the victories
in order that America
may live.
{five service medallions, two eagles}
