Marker Text:

US Highway 83
In gratitude to the thousands of men and women who served our country during the Vietnam War, the people of Texas dedicate this highway which runs across our state from the Southernmost tip to the northernmost point. It is hope that all those who travel US 83 will pledge to remember those gave up their lives or their youth or their hopes in that long and bitter conflict. We vow not to forget those who did not return to us and we pledge to remember the sacrifices of those who have come home.

Second paragraph on the marker is the same text as provided here, only in Spanish.

Us 83 starts in Brownsville ad runs north along the Rio Grande to Laredo, then cuts inland running almost true north through Uvalde, Abilene, Childress, and on into Perryton; passing through many ranches, open land and the soul of Texas.
