Inscription.  

A tribute to
our Desert Shield/Storm
Veterans, women and men;
young and old.

You left your loved ones for the unknown.
You gave up the comforts of home,
for the hot, drying heat.
You served your country in the
fight for peace and justice.
You braved the evils of the world,
and stood tall.
May we never forget your spirit.
God bless you one and all.
