Dear Readers:

Some of you may have seen this picture before, but during this season, it is worth seeing again.

I find it amazing that this photo, taken in 1918, still exists! Someone found it and put it online, as a reminder of what it has cost so many to keep America free. The Homeplace Mission wishes to give tribute to America's veterans with this amazing picture as May's article, in honor of Memorial Day.

This is a picture of 18,000 men preparing for war at  Camp Dodge in Iowa...EIGHTEEN THOUSAND MEN!  One picture is worth more than a thousand words and in this case, 18,000 words! What a priceless gift from our grandfathers, and all who have bravely fought for God and Country.
