            We adore

            In times of danger

            Not before, but;

            When danger has passed

            And everything is right

            God is forgotten

                        And

            The Service members denied.

“Lumpkin County honors those men and women for bravery, service, leadership, and sacrifices which maintained our American Way of Life.  Lumpkin County has not forgotten its sons and daughters.”
