Inscription.

This memorial monument area is dedicated this date, Nov. 11, 1994, to the men and women of Runnels County who served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America, especially to those who so gallantly gave their lives to make this a free nation.

In honor of those men and women who so nobly served our country we dedicate this memorial.

We bow our heads at this moment and offer a silent prayer that they did not serve in vain.

In memory of
those who gave their all
