In Honor of Memorial Day 2004

Carved in stone at the 17th Street Entrance to the World War II Memorial, Washington, DC:

"Here in the Presence of Washington and Lincoln,
One the Eighteenth Century Father and the Other the Nineteenth Century Preserver of our Nation,
We Honor Those Twentieth Century Americans
Who Took Up the Struggle During the Second World War
and Made the Sacrifices to Perpetuate the Gift Our Forefathers Entrusted to Us:
A Nation Conceived in Liberty and Justice."

~ General Eisenhower's D-Day quote engraved in the Memorial granite

Our sincere gratitude to every serviceman who wore the uniform of the United States military in any conflict. We salute and honor each of you. ~ DLB
