"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... you are now living in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours... You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears; yours sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well." - Atatürk 1934

Plaque, in Turkish and English, in front of the monument:

"Bu memleketim toprakları üstünde kanlarını döken kahramanlar! Burada, bir dost vatanın toprağındasınız. huzur ve sükûn içinde uyuyunuz. Sizler, mehmetçiklerle yan yana, koyun koyunasınız. Uzak diyarlardan evlâtlarını harbe gönderen analar! Gözyaşlarınızı dindiriniz. Evlâtlarınız, bizim bağrımızadır. Huzur icindedirler ve huzur içinde rahat rahat uyuyacaklardır. onlar, bu toprakta canlarını verdikten sonra. artık bizim evlâtlarımız olmuşlardır." — Atatürk, 1934
