This enduring monument of marble with attached bronze plaque is a symbol of honor and a tribute of praise for the valiant service rendered by the men and women from Brewster County who answered the call of duty in the Armed Forces of the nation. But also the sovereignty of our allies threatened with annihilation by the ruthless agressors. Our devotion to freedom and love for humanity left no other course so the grand old star spangled banner was unfurled in three wars, World War I, World War II and the Korean War.

Faced with this tremendous task our nation fought the most altruistic wars of the century. Thousands of our heroes are dead—they died for liberty—they died for us and other countries—they are at rest—many sleep in the lands they made free under the flag they rendered stainless—under the solemn pines and the drooping willows—they sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds each in the window—less palace of rest. Our sentiment for soldiers living and dead; cheers for the living; tears for the dead.
