Fight On!

I got this from Sam Gipp's web site.

Well, I’m sorry for Mary and the babies. I should have liked to live for my country; but if I have to die, I’ll do it as a man and a Christian ought. I hope those who will be born a hundred years after I’m gone will appreciate the price we had to pay to give them a home and a country.” Fight on!
