• "IN GRATEFUL TRIBUTE TO THOSE HEROES FROM
ATHENIA WHO GAVE THEIR
LIVES FOR FREEDOM'S CAUSE"
To our lifelong friends who gave their lives for our country… those friends with whom we grew, studied and shared happy experiences… we dedicate our Athenia Veterans Post.
This dedication is made with a firm purpose. Many of us have shared neighborhood club experiences before… Athenia Boy's Club, Van Houten A.C., Richardson and Clifton Colts… and now our own Athenia Veterans Post.
Our friends gave up their lives to help make this a better world in which we live. We are going to help to make our community a better one in which to live. We feel that in doing so we make our contributions to that ideal for which they made the supreme sacrifice… A better world.
The plaque bearing the names of Athenia Veterans who gave their lives in military conflicts.
In humble gratitude, we the members of the Athenia Veterans Post, wish to dedicate this memorial to our beloved fellow comrades, who gave their lives to protect our homeland from the hands of the oppressors. May this native rock, taken from Athenia soil be an everlasting reminder of the supreme sacrifice which we hold dear, and for which we are pledged to ever uphold.
