————————
This memorial is dedicated as a perpetual reminder of the 267 men from Cayuga County, New York who died in service to their country during World War II, and to those who offered their lives during time of war.
These men, wherever and wherever they fell died to safeguard the destiny of man.
We the living accept the sacred trust of their final hours, their last thoughts, their common dream of safety and welfare for America.
They were strong enough, brave enough and willing to fight to the death for our freedom.
We pay tribute to the "Greatest Generation" that served our nation in time of war.
We will never forget."
