Long Description:
Located along a short sidewalk lined with many memorials, this large and striking memorial honors all the women who have served in the military in every capacity. The memorial consists of a large sculpted monument and a nearby plaque with lyrics written by a famed local vietnam veteran poet and blues singer, Sarge Lintecum.

Since the box for words written on the memorial wont allow me to post all of the plaque there, I will post it in this space.

You can tell her by the twinkle in her eye,
At parades when the flag marches by.
She served our country and she served it very well.
Some have even served a tour or two in Hell.

She suffered hardship and never ceased to care.
It gave us strength just to know that she was there.
She was a leader, you could tell by the rank she wore,
But she became the invisible soldier after the war.

She can march, she can fly, and she can sail.
She proved that bravery isn't exclusive of the male.
She did every job she was asked and more,
But she became the invisible soldier after the war.

Now, it is finally time to right a wrong.
Honor our sister soldier; hear her song.
It's very clear that she's a patriot to the core.
Don't let her be the invisible soldier anymore.

Sarge Lintecum
