1. Veterans Memorial
Inscription.

In Memory of
All American Veterans


This memorial honors all American Veterans
who although separated by generations shared a common
undeniable goal to protect our country's freedoms.
In war and in peace they have placed themselves
in harm's way to serve a cause greater than themselves,
ensuring that the freedom we hold dear and
the values we all share shall prevail.

The American Veteran...
Forever a symbol of
Heroism, Sacrifice, and Freedom.
