Palatka in Putnam County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Veterans Memorial Plaza
This memorial is raised not for the cause of war, nor for the prizes of victory: rather, it is dedicated in honor of the men who fought and died for freedom.
While war is abhorrent to all civilized men, conflict is often necessary for the achievement of peace. To this proposition, our sons have often given their lives.
For their sacrifice, it is only proper that that those who still live should always remember those who so nobly went forth for the cause of peace, that they may not have died in vain.
