While still in the innocence of their youth, they answered their country's call. They made the supreme sacrifice during World War II for us to remain free. It is with profound respect and gratitude that we honorably dedicate this memorial to them. May we pause and reflect and vever forget their sacrifice.
May the Lord grant them eternal peace
