    “No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.”
    Thanks for the appreciation and thanks to all the other veterans with us and not. I salute you.

    AMEN!

    Thank You current and former Military Members.
    And God Bless the one's who made the ultimate sacrifice for us.

    Let's not forget the families of the Military past and present. They bear a huge burden just as the Soldiers do.

    Executive Mansion, Washington, Nov. 21, 1864.

    Dear Madam,--

    I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.

    I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming.

    But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

    I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

    Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

    A. Lincoln

    There are a few images which will be forever burned into my brain when I think about Vets.
