"Let us, then, at the time appointed gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with the choicest flowers of spring-time; let us raise above them the dear old flag they saved from dishonor; let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us, a sacred charge upon a nation's gratitude, the soldier's and sailor's widow and orphan." -- American Civil War U.S. Army General John Logan, said when issuing the first Memorial Day order on May 5, 1868.

"Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men." - Gen. George S. Patton (1885 - 1945)

"He who loathes war, and will do everything in his power to avert it, but who will, in the last extremity, encounter its perils, from love of country and of home - who is willing to sacrifice himself, and all that is dear to him in life, to promote the well-being of his fellowman, will ever receive a worthy homage." - Abbott. (Quoted in The Wilmore News, April 26, 1917.)

"All gave some, some gave all." -- Author Unknown.

In fond and respectful remembrance
of the bright and blooming youths
who have gone
marching, sailing and flying off to war
from Comanche County, Kansas,
for the United States of America.

They budded in the heartland.
