Long Description:
On the black granite marker are listed all the names of those who gave their lives in WW1, WW2, and Viet Nam.

One of the inscriptions on the marker is from JFK, as follows: LET EVERY NATION KNOW THAT WHETHER IT WISHES US WELL OR ILL, THAT WE SHALL PAY ANY PRICE, BEAR ANY BURDEN, MEET ANY HARDSHIP, SUPPORT ANY FRIEND, OPPOSE ANY FOE, TO ASSURE THE SURVIVAL AND THE SUCCESS OF LIBERTY.

Another inscription reads: ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL. THESE BRAVE AMERICANS PAID THE SUPREME SACRIFICE FOR THEIR BELOVED COUNTRY. THEY GAVE THE LAST FULL MEASURE OF DEVOTION SO THAT WE MAY ENJOY THE FREEDOMS OF DEMOCRACY. MAY GOD GRANT THEM SERENITY AND RESERVE A SPECIAL PLACE OF PEACE FOR THEM.
