A ‘Special Day’ once a year creates an excuse for neglect on the other 365 days for mothers, fathers & veterans”

Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.

Serving my country was a life-changing experience for me. It was during those years that I realized the importance of commitment, dedication, honor, and discipline. I have never laughed so much; nor have I ever prayed so much. I made life-long friends. The leaders and heroes I served with helped shape me into the man I am today. I feel honored to have been a part of such a great tradition and grateful to others who have walked the same path. Thank you!

Support our troops!” we cry, but I say, “Love our veterans!” And when he neglects church, take him cookies anyway. Sing him a song. Pet his cat.

“To The Veterans of the United States of America
Thank you, for the cost you paid for our freedom, thank you for the freedom to live in safety and pursue happiness, for freedom of speech (thus my book), and for all the freedoms that we daily take for granted.”

Thomas Edwin Ross 19 July 1850 27 March 1952 Possible
Richard William Cumpston 23 May 1841 5 September 1952 Unknown
William Loudermilk 23 October 1847 April 1851 18 September 1952 Possible

Dissimilar to the U.S. military files, the Confederate records had no official file framework after the war. On the other hand, for the vast majority of the cases researched, the periods of the petitioners alone were sufficient to demonstrate their case was false. Williams was for the most part recognized as the “last Confederate veteran” in 1950s daily papers. Then again, in September 1959 a report by The New York Timesrevealed that he was truth be told conceived in 1854 in Itawamba District, Mississippi, and not 1842 as asserted. Still, since Salling and the various inquirers were dead, Williams was commended as the last Confederate veteran after his passing on 20 December 1959.

Salling’s own particular status is questioned. In 1991, William Wonder inspected the cases of Salling and a few other “last Common War veterans” for a piece in the Common War history magazineBlue & Dark.

Wonder discovered enumeration information that showed Salling was conceived in 1858, not 1846. Albeit in 1900 Salling supplied a birthdate of Walk 1858, he seems to have been conceived around 1856, still past the point where it is possible to have served in the Confederate Armed force.

The 1860 statistics records him as 4 years of age, and the 1870 evaluation as 14.William Lundy is recorded as 1 year old on the 1860 enumeration, and from 1870 until 1930 he gave registration marshals ages that reflected birthdates as ahead of schedule as 1853 and as late as 1860.

He didn’t push his birthdate back to the 1840s until he sought a Confederate annuity from the condition of Florida. In the same piece, Wonder affirmed Woolson’s case to be the last surviving Union veteran and stated that Woolson was the last honest to goodness Common War veteran on either side.

Nonetheless, Wonder did not present examination setting up who, among the few other Confederate cases from the 1950s, some of which seem, by all accounts, to be certifiable, was the genuine last Confederate veteran.

A complete list of war veterans of the whole world who fought in military wars and insurgencies can be obtained from wikipedia
