1. Veterans Memorial
Inscription.
We Remember
That smile, that twinkle or tear in your eye,
that laugh;
We remember
when you were growing up on the streets,
the grocery stores, the soda fountains, pharmacies and shops;
We remember
When you attended our elementary schools
and Victor Valley Highs School;
We remember
when war or conflict came, our nation called
on you and you responded;
We remember
when you came home on leave, proudly
wearing your uniform
We remember
when you where sent away to defend our
country, that last good bye;
We remember
We will always remember
