Inscription:
In grateful memory of Private Raymond C. Bell, A.S. No. 38520198 Born March 5, 1925 Who died in the Service of his Country in the European Area, June 6, 1944.
He stands in the unbroken line of Patriots who have dared to die that freedom might live and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it, he lives - in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men.
 
Note: On a recent visit to Raymond's grave, a cemetery board member noticed that his photo is now missing from his marker.
