Dedicated To The Recipients Of The

"The Purple Heart"

Combat Wounded Veterans
Military Order of
the Purple Heart 1782 - 1932


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 today that shed his blood with me
shall be my brother.
