November 21, 1864 Mrs. Bixby-

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 to 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 -

Please take time out this weekend to remember and give thanks for the veterans who have fought to protect our way of life.

I lost 2 very close friends while serving. 

Jimmy: LoverBoy from Charlotte, NC. Talked about girl problems all the time. He had 3 or 4 girls from Charlotte that sent him perfume laced letters all the time. Every girl in the bar wanted him, so we got all the girls that figured out he was out of their league. Lol

Chris: Surfer Boy from Hawaii. Only an inch taller, but he was the strongest guy I ever served with, both physically and mentally. He was one of our fallen brothers who met his fate on the air strip in Panama trying to get Noriega. 

I know they are both looking down at us and waiting for us to join their spirits.

I'm a Vietnam War Veteran. I don't get upset when people confuse Memorial Day, Veteran's Day etc.Took a long time getting here, so when someone tells me "Happy Memorial Day"......I smile and say thank you.
