For all airmen who flew combat missions over Romania, and in memory of our many comrades who endured all and gave all that mankind might live in freedom and in peace, we dedicate this memorial.
Polesti [sic - Ploesti] Oil Fields
Constanta-Guirgui-Simeria Pitesta
Harken you who in spirit soar,
to the echo of thundering wings;
Theirs was the sky, the high frontier,
where courage and valor reign.
Though fate of man has stilled their wings,
and quieted their thunderous song,
In those who streak the beckoning blue
Their selfless courage lives on.
Dedicated this
