North Carolina group raises funds on Memorial Day weekend for Special Forces families
Fayetteville, North Carolina - In a sea of mud surrounding the Capitol building, thousands gathered on Saturday, March 4, 1865, to witness Abraham Lincoln’s second inauguration. The Civil War, running for four long years, was weeks from ending and the focus of his address. Stepping to the edge of the East Portico to address a wounded nation, Lincoln’s speech was much shorter than his first.
The end, found in the fourth paragraph, included a plea for the soldiers caught in this conflict. “(T)o care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan …” On this Memorial Day, we look to a pair of men who are doing just that for today’s soldiers with the Duskin and Stephens Foundation.
