DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO SERVED AND DIED
MAY THEIR SACRIFICE FOREVER INSPIRE FREEDOM

"I was that which others did not want to be. I went where
others feared to go, and did what others feared to do.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly
accepted the thought of eternal loneliness should I fail.
I have seen the face of terror, felt the stinging cold of fear,
and have enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love.
I have cried, hurt and hoped, but most of all, I knew that
someday I would be able to say that I was proud and honored
to serve my country."

Dedicated by the Manitowoc County
United Veterans Council and Friends
this 9th Day of November 1986
