—World War II —
From North and South in our land we came that freedom might prevail.
On D-Day, 6 June 1944, in the great allied amphibious assault, the 29th Infantry Division stormed ashore on Omaha Beach to win a beachhead.
Our fallen lie among you. They gave the last full measure of their devotion. Sleep, comrades, forever young. We salute you.
