Inscription.

Dedicated to the men and women
of the United States Armed Forces

Freedom's Call
They are called to be in uniform
to serve both day and night
protecting our great country
to fight the valiant fight

To rescue us from danger
at home, across the sea
brave and special people
who keep our nation free

And together on a mission
our heroes, they are there
every color, every creed
with freedom's light to share

And day by day step by step
all for one and one for all
our heroes stand together strong
to answer freedom's call
