Veterans: You Were Making History…We Thank You

veterans day 2016

Emerging Civil War extends a sincere “thank you” to military veterans for their service.

You have or are currently defending freedom and justice. You keep America safe. We honor your commitment to keeping the Stars and Stripes flying. Thank you!

“A quarter of a century ago…you were doing what you deemed your duty. Today you come with modest main, with care more for truth than for praise, to retrace and record the simple facts…

“You were making history. The world has recorded for you more than you have written. The centuries to come will share and recognize…with growing gratitude…

“And so it is. We know not of the future, and cannot plan for it much. But we can hold our spirits…so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and such ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be whenever and wherever the hour strikes that calls to noble action… No man becomes suddenly different from his habit and cherished thought…

~Joshua L. Chamberlain, excerpts from Speech at the Dedication of the 20th Maine Monuments at Gettysburg, October 3, 1889.
