Iowa Boys Who Have Sacrificed Their Lives That Democracy Might Live

 

Lest We Forget

       These sons of Iowa shall be our heroes until the end of time. We cannot bring them back to life, nor can we heal the broken hearts of those mothers and fathers who gave their boys to the cause of liberty.

      But in every county in Iowa there should be built a permanent memorial, that, with the coming of each new dawn, will remind us not only of the final sacrifice these boys have made, but also of the ideals for which they fought.
