We Need Volunteers

 

            We need your help!  We would like to save our history; spread and promote what this little known war was all about and its effects on the history of this great nation.

 

            We’re calling out to all individuals with relations who fought in the great battles of the Spanish-American war in any of its theaters; like 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 upon to protect and perpetuate the lives of these great men who served during this time.  A war, which has similarities to the current war in which men fight for the freedoms of others, others, that did not even know.  And of freedoms that can be taken away from any one person at any one point.  Good men, who died, never knowing what their fighting had wrought knowing only the pain of dying for their countrymen and for future generations.  All they wanted was to be remembered for their brave actions.  Those actions, such as the needless explosion of the U.S.S. Maine on February 15, 1898, the Rough Riders who perished on San Juan Hill and your ancestors 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 your fellow countrymen in the long struggle of forgetfulness?

 

We are trying to re-organize the General J.P.S. Corbin, Camp #123 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.  In doing so, we have been attached as an outpost from the Joseph Melvin Leonard, Camp # 168.  We would be excited to talk with anyone who wishes to join this great organization and to find out what you can do to help.
