Long Description:
A lone plaque surrounded by many large monuments to various parts of the armed services.

Plaque reads

Dedicated to the memory of Sam Turetsky who was a POW*MIA in Germany during WW II and to all members of the Armed Forces who have been or still are POW*MIA's

Apparently from what I can find online, there was a Sam Turetsky from Sun City, Arizona (not far from this cemetery) who was a POW at Stalag Luft IV from 1944-1945. He appears to have died in 1993.
