Marysville in Yuba County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Yuba County Veterans Memorial
We must embrace the fact that we are the benefactors of their sacrifices. We must also remember to honor the Veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice – their lives! Their names must not be lost nor forgotten.
Our community has the responsibility to cherish their sacrifice to us – Their Gift ensuring our Freedom. For every thing we do and every thing we have we owe to them.
Have we not inherited their hopes and their dreams? And are their hopes and dreams not fulfilled through us? In a greater sense are we not their living memorials – We who enjoy the gift of freedom purchased with their blood?
How can we continue in all that we have by forgetting how we received it? Did they not trade all of their futures for our present?
It is so, with much resolve and Gods help we dedicate these memorials to their memory.
