1. The Quintessential Soldier Marker
Inscription.

Here we present our vision of the perfect U.S. soldier

He is the absolute embodiment of military perfection
coupled with an eye toward compassion

He is motivated to put a quick end to hostilities by
whatever means necessary

Our soldier is depicted as the protector of the injured
or downtrodden while totally aware of the surrounding
evil which threatens life, limb and property

Our soldier is shown as being courageous under fire,
multitasking as he aids a wounded comrade

He is not averse to using deadly force while employing
exact professional judgment in all he does

He is a savior
He is a warrior
He is a thinking human being
He is in excellent physical condition
His face shows his disgust for war
His body shows the warriors stance as he aids his injured buddy

This is the task we set before our sculptor Brian Hanlon
We believe he has captured our vision and brought
it to us with this unique design

The Quintessential Soldier is your brother, son, father,
mother or sister;

The Quintessential Soldier is you
