Photograph of the Cherokee County Veterans Memorial, on the grounds of the Cherokee County Courthouse. There are three stones. The stone in the middle has the logos for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, as well as that of the United States. It says "Cherokee County Veterans Memorial, Dedicated May 31, 2004." The stone on the left reads: "In honor of all veterans: Men and women who answer the call to duty during war and peace, who serve our country with honor, often making the ultimate sacrifice to insure our nation's freedom. Veterans of the past, present, and future, we salute you. From the grateful citizens of Cherokee County. Erected by Rusk VFW Post 3406 and Ladies Auxiliary Post 3406. American Legion Post 293." The stone on the right reads: "Tribute. It is the soldier not the reporter who has given us freedom of press. It is the soldier not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the solder not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the solder not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag. By Father D. O'Brien, USMC."
