As I thought about my own situation, I was reminded about General George Washington’s farewell address to his officers at the end of the Revolutionary War. I read somewhere that before he read his speech; he had to put on his glasses. He asked the officers to pardon him while he put them on. He said that his eyesight had suffered in the service of his country.
I spent a few minutes this morning trying to verify that fact, but could not locate the information. I believe it is true. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction for the quote. I am not implying that Washington was disabled. I am merely pointing out that many veterans have suffered in the service of the country. I would hate to see the country fail to support them now. If that happens on November 1, it will not be forgotten or forgiven any time soon.
see that West Point (Army) finally won a game. It is fortunate that it was
homecoming. They defeated E. Michigan 50 to 25. A few academy records were
broken. Now beat Navy.
