I have a story: My relative (a cousin to my direct ancestor), Richard Verrill, of the 17th Maine Volunteers, Co. C, escaped from Libby Prison in Richmond, VA, in February 1864. He promptly suffered from what we now call re-feeding syndrome. Having been starved, as he started to eat, certain nurtients were lacking and this causes a terribly long, painful series of events as the body's organs fail. It takes a week or two to run it's course before ending in death.  Richard, in his illness, wrote home to his wife, so she would know what became of him. She received the letter 2 years later.

Memorial Day is a special day for remembering all who are serving or have served our country. Keeping them all in my prayers to come home safely. I love your picture and it's quote!
