Old Glory

I Am The Star Spangled Banner.....
Conceived In 1777 Out Of Love
America Bore For Liberty And Honor.
I Am The Memorial Of Countless Heroes Who
Shed Their Blood To Preserve This
Sacred Heritage.
I Have Inspired Generations Of Gallant Men
Who Fought Against Tyranny.
I Am The Spirit Of Valley Forge.....
Of Sacrifice..... Of Courage.
I Have Guarded Every Rampart Where Freedom
Defended Its Glorious Cause....
Tripoli... Belleau Wood...Argonne Forest
...Omaha Beach...Anzio...Bastogne
...Guadalcanal…Coral Sea...
Leyte Gulf...Iwo Jima...Korea...
Viet Nam
I Fly Wherever Americans Gave Their Lives To
Preserve The Sanctity Of Life.
My Home Is In The Hearts Of All Who Feel A
Thrill Of Pride When They Salute Me
And What I Symbolize—

God • Country • Freedom • Valor

Bottom section of marker:

On Fame's Eternal Camping Ground
Their Silent Tents Are Spread,
And Glory Guards, With Solemn Round
The Bivouac Of The Dead.
