7857 This is something that was written a long time ago to a Mrs. Bixbey in Boston, so bare with me. Madam, I've been shown in the files of the war department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless it must be, any words of mine, that would attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the republic they died to save. And pray that our heavenly Father will assuage the anguish of your bereavement and leave you only with the cherished memory of the loved & lost. And the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln (full quote)

14588 “It is with the most profound sense of joy that I write to inform you that your son, Private James Ryan, is well and at this very moment on his way home from European battlefields. Reports from the front indicate James did his duty in combat with great courage and steadfast dedication, even after he was informed of the tragic loss your family has suffered in this great campaign to rid the world of tyranny and oppression. I take great pleasure in joining the Secretary of war, the men and women of the United States Army and the citizens of the a grateful nation in wishing you good health and many years of happiness with James at your side. Nothing, not even the return of a beloved son, can compensate you, or the thousands of other American families who have suffered great loss in this tragic war. I might share with you some words which have sustained me through long dark nights of peril and loss and heartache, and I quote, “I pray that our heavenly father may ensiled the anguish of your bereavement and leave you with only the cherished memory of the loved and lost and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice on the alter of freedom” Abraham Lincoln. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, George C. Marshall, General, Chief of staff.” (full quote)
14588 I don't know. Part of me thinks the kid's right. He asks what he's done to deserve this. He wants to stay here, fine. Let's leave him and go home. But then another part of me thinks, what if by some miracle we stay, then actually make it out of here. Someday we might look back on this and decide that saving Private Ryan was the one decent thing we were able to pull out of this whole godawful mess. Like you said, Captain, maybe we do that, we all earn the right to go home. (full quote)
