Dedicated to all men and women wounded in all our wars

Middle right
My stone is red for the blood they shed. the medal I bear is my country's way to show they care. If I could be seen by all mankind maybe peace will come in my lifetime.

We few, we happy few. We band of brothers. For he to-day that sheds his blood with me shall always be my brother.
