It Was Worth It

“It was worth it, Abe,” read the notes on the back of this U.S. Coast Guard photo from the 1940s, “so that … ‘freedom … shall not perish from the earth …’ A fighting Coast Guardsman, who gave his right arm in battle pays Memorial Day tribute at the Lincoln shrine in Washington, D.C. He is Coast Guardsman Thomas Sortino of Chicago, who participated in the North African invasion.” Photo from U.S. Coast Guard

May this country be worth their sacrifices.
