American Soldier Memorial
This memorial was made for Marine Sgt. David Wallace III who was killed in Afghanistan on January 27, 2009. The memorial was presented to his mother at a football pregame presentation where they retired his jersey and number. I personally did not know David but he grew up in the town where I lived and he went to the same school as I did (Sharpsville, PA). The saying is a Bible verse which says "Greater love hath no man, that he lay down his life for his friend.
John 15:13. Operation Enduring Freedom, Marine Sgt. David William Wallace II, June 5, 1983 - January 27, 2009.

I definitely plan to stitch more memorials for this site in memory of these soldiers who gave their lives for country.
