Erie in Erie County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Dedicated to Those in Northwestern PA. Wounded in All Wars
1782 Military Order of The Purple Heart 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.
