On January 25, 1981 fifty-two Americans were reunited with their families and nation after 444 days as hostages in Iran. Enroute to the U.S.M.A., West Point they were the recipients of an outpouring of love from people of the Hudson Valley and a "Hometown, U.S.A." reception by Highland Falls bedecked in yellow ribbons-symbolic of welcome to those who have returned.

This plaque is dedicated to that spirit of patriotism to the eight brave young men who earlier lost their lives attempting to rescue the hostages, and to all who have risked or lost their lives for freedom.
