VETERAN’S PLAZA

BAYLISS PARK, COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA

 

“Gone are the soldiers we loved so dear

Silent are their voice we used to hear,

Memories of them we forever recall

As we read their names on the Granite Wall

 

Mother, Father, Daughter or Son

Lost in a battle that was never won.

Many years have past but we still recall

All veteran’s names on the Granite Wall.

 

Softly whispering their names we cried,

For in a battle they fought and died.

Strong, courageous, proud and tall

Are the soldiers etched on the Granite Wall.

 

Far from the battlefields of war

Where Reveille shall wake no more,

The soldiers beyond bugler’s call

Who’s blood was shed on the Granite Wall.

 

In memory, to all veterans who lost their lives

And all who served in the armed forces.”

~ Linda Adams, IVH, RTW
