— Beside the Interstate —

Old Glory
I am the Star Spangled Banner
conceived in 1777 out of the love
America had for Liberty and Honor.
I am the memorial of countless heroes
who shed their blood to preserve
this sacred heritage.
I have inspired generations of gallant men
and women who fought against tyranny.
I am the spirit of Valley Forge...
Of sacrifice...Of Courage.
I have guarded every rampart where
Freedom defended its glorious cause...
I fly wherever Americans gave their lives
to preserve the sanctity of life
My home is in the hearts of all who feel
a thrill of pride when they salute me
and what I symbolize...
This plaque is dedicated in honor of all
those who served their country in all wars,
and are laid to rest in Somerford Township.
This plaque donated by the Ed Geer family.
