Dear citizens of Fayette County,
“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”
This quote is often attributed to George Washington. Unfortunately, he didn’t actually say it, and further research has not divulged the name of the wise person who did. But no matter, it does ring true.
