We are calling all individuals with relatives who fought
in the great battles of the Spanish American war in any of the theaters; The Spanish American War of 1898; The Philippine Insurrection of 1899-1901 and the China Relief Expedition 1900-1901
or those who are merely interested in American history. We as Sons are called
to protect and perpetuate the lives of these great men who served during this time of war.
A war, which has similarities to the current war in which men fight for the freedoms of others, others that did not
even know. Freedoms that can be taken away from any one person at any one moment.
Good men who died never knowing what their fighting had wrought, knowing only the pain of dying for thier country
men and for the future generations. All they wanted is to be remembered for their
brave actions. Those actions such as the needless explosion of the USS Maine
on 15 February 1898, the Rough Riders who perished on San Juan Hill, and your ancestor who bore the battle scares of war. Where will you stand and fight the injustice of our modern age against these fine
men? Will you not stand and fight for you fellow countrymen in the long struggle of forgetfulness.
