Here are the quotations inscribed on the monument:

“I do not believe that the men who served in uniform in Vietnam have been given the credit they deserve. It was a difficult war against an unorthodox enemy.” Gen. Wm. C. Westmoreland

“Duty, honor, country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.” Gen. Douglas MacArthur

“In this column I want to tell you what the opening of the second front entailed, so that you can know and appreciate and forever be humbly grateful to those both dead and alive who did it for you.” Ernie Pyle

“Posterity: You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.” John Quincy Adams

I think the description of the monument should say 80 TONS of granite rather than 80 pounds. 80 pounds of granite would make a very small monument indeed.
