What's in the banner?

You've probably heard about the little ruckus regarding Arizona's new 9/11 memorial.
But what you probably didn't know is that Arizona also has a new World War II memorial, and my operatives deep within the Scorchy State have returned with photos:

A familiar name appears.
Wonder if they have a memorial for the Mexican-American War?

UPDATE: By the way, one of the panels in the real Arizona 9/11 memorial notes that Avtar Singh Cheira, a Sikh, was shot in Phoenix on 5/19/03. You can read a little about that here. Cheira has recovered, but his assailants were never found. It certainly does sound like a crime motivated by bigotry. But I must point out that, sadly, bigotry existed in the world before 9/11, and will no doubt be with us for some time to come. I couldn't find anything which indicated that this shooting had anything to do with 9/11, nearly two years earlier.
ALSO: It should be noted that the backgrounds to images in this post came from the photos by "AZ Patriot" in the Hot Air link, above.
