Citation on the marble plaque:

"We have only died in vain if you believe so;
You have to decide the wisdom of our choice,
By the World which you shall build upon headstones,
And the everlasting truth,which have your voice.

Though dead,we are no heroes yet,nor can be,
‘til the living by their lives which are the tools.
Carve us the epitaph of wise men,
And give us not the epitaph of fools."
(David J.Phillips. 506th P.IR/101st Abne Div.)
