We can too easily name our Republic’s wars and rate them grand or regrettable, depending which way the day’s winds blow, but whether the Banana War or the War Between the States, there were boys who offered up a million moments they deserved and we take for granted; who never lived to see what fruits were born of the patch of dust their blood consecrated. Reflecting with reverence those who sacrificed more than they were ever offered.
