Honor Roll Project: Shea-Magrath Memorial (Part 3)

In recognition of those who have served our country in the military, Heather Wilkinson Rojo of the Nutfield Genealogy blog started the Honor Roll Project.  It’s an opportunity to publicly document the names on military memorials around the world, thus making them easily searchable on the internet for people who are looking for them!

THEY PLAYED HERE AS BOYS,
THEY LEFT US IN THEIR YOUTH;
THEY SERVED AS MEN,
THEY DIED AS HEROES;
THEY LIVE AGAIN,
FOREVER ENSHRINED IN THE
HEART OF THIS GRATEFUL CITY.
