53rd Brigade - 28th Division

(First Plaque):
107th United States Field Artillery
53rd Brigade 28th Division
American Expeditionary Forces
This monument was erected by the Veterans Association of the 107th Field Artillery in memory of the faithful sons of Pennsylvania who served in this regiment in World War I.

The names inscribed on this monument are the names of men and boys who were not soldiers by profession. They were ordinary citizens of this great commonwealth when the call came. They put away their tools, closed their desk tops, covered their typewriters, banked their fires, hung up their overalls and went forth together to meet the enemy on foreign soil.

They met the finest trained soldiers in the world and defeated them decisively in the battles of the Aisne-Marne, Oise-Aisne, Muese-Argonne and Ypre-Lys. This they were able to do becase they had faith in God and love for their country in their hearts.

Sit here and rest. Let your eyes gaze on the beautiful mountains and valleys of Pennsylvania. All this beauty is yours to enjoy because men have fought and died to preserve it. God grant that this country will always enjoy freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.
