"This We Shall Remember"

Kenoshans have fought and died in seven wars, leaving a legacy of courage and devotion, and a selfless contribution to our survival as a free nation.

This boulder is from a World War Two battle area near the city of Naha, Okinawa. The sand is from the Omaha and Utah Beaches of Normandy, France. Stone and sand symbolize the worldwide battlegrounds of all wars where Americans have died.

Erected by the People of Greater Kenosha, with guidance from the "Veterans Council of Kenosha County Memorial Committee Inc." Dedicated the 7th day of November, in the Year of the American Revolution Bicentennial, 1976.
