Long Description:
Located on Main St. near Adams St in Plymouth NC.

This memorial has been built to recognize the response of our state each time our nation needed warriors...To honor each generation that served us at home and to memorialize those who left home to meet the enemy at such a distance that those at home were protected.

This memorial was built to recognize the continuity of sacrifice between generations and to provide space for names from each succeeding generation to appear together on the same wall as members of the same brotherhood, as brothers and sisters of the same family.

This memorial was built so that we might see the common cause of each generation, the heritage of valor, the honor in sacrifice, and the imperative of individual duty
