Inscription.
June 25, 1950      Korea      July 27, 1953

Dedicated to the memory of these men and women from Oregon so their sacrifice will never be forgotten

Oh, could our fallen brothers
              know the honor they helped bring
to God, and to our country,
              to their memory now we sing.
You gave your lives for Freedom,
              for your families, and for friends,
and for that you have our special love
              and a thanks that never ends.

If God gives grace to warriors
              serving in his holy name,
if a special place in Heaven waits
              for those, who in honor came,
then those who served with honor
              on that far Korean shore,
will have his grace and a special place
              when they stand at Heaven’s door.
              Paul E. Sanders
