With so many of our military veterans, returned safely to loved ones, only to find themselves under attack from ALS, it is fitting to consider the following passage in the orignal General Order: "...Let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us, a sacred charge upon a nations gratitude the soldiers and sailors widow and orphan."
Please take a few minutes this weekend to recognize and thank (even silently) the men and women who have given their lives to defend and preserve our way of life. Better yet, take action and write to your representatives in Washington, DC. Ask them to support the 2009 Public Policy priorities set by ALSA National. Visit the Advocacy Action Center to learn more.
