1. Purple Heart Memorial
Inscription.

Dedicated to all men and women
wounded in all our wars

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.

Thanks to a Grateful Community
 
Erected by Lt George H Ramer CMH Chapter #656.
