Dedication Plaque

May 17, 1992 - - a special dedication,memories - - sweet n' bitter recollections.

August 1990, U.S. troops deployed to a foreign land,Saudia Arabia - - a country of sand.

To those who served with much pride,hearts were with you - - serving by your side.

As hearts cried out "From a distance","Let there be Peace" - - everyday we listened.

United States of America flags blew in the breeze,yellow ribbons hung and prayers were sent overseas.

Feb. 28, 1991 - - the "Gulf War" had been won,Pres. Bush sent troops home in March of 1991.

This Memorial Rock is more than a piece of cold stone,It represents Love-Support-Thanks, you were not alone.

This Rock is dedicated to "Desert Storm Veterans"we remember all who served in the wars of past,
"We are proud to be an American"
