Military Tombstone-Inscription:"PFC 625 Field Artillery Korea" KIA during Korean War Son of Eddie and Jane Alvis;
Tread lightly, `tis a soldier`s grave,
a lonely, mossy mound;
And yet to hearts like mine and thine
it should be Holy ground.
Speak softly, let no careless laugh,
escape your lips where sweetly sleeps
the hero in his rest.
For him no reveille will beat
when morning beams shall come;
For him, at night, no tattoo rolls
its thunders in the night.
Tread lightly! for a man bequeathed,
ere laid beneath this sod,
His ashes to his native land,
His gallant soul to God.
Eddie Alvis (1903 - 1979)
Jane Alvis (1912 - 1971)
