Catalog Number 2006.71.23
Object Name Speech
Accession number 2006.71
Description A typed copy of a speech that was given to the Topeka chapter of the National Military Sisterhood of America.

The speech is about the sacrifices of the woman in the Sisterhood. The speech begins by mentioning that not all the names that were apparently listed off just before the speech are known by all, but they are all in comment because they sought out each other in a time of war. The speech goes on to speak of the pain of separation all woman feels after having their men go off to war, and that this sacrifice is the highest form of patriotism possible, as well as the inspiration these women are giving to future generations that will have to go through similar suffering. The speech then reminds the woman to remember the higher ideals that the soldiers fought for when looking at a gold star in the window of a house. It then tells what the stars represent. The speech closes by honoring the memory of the young men who had died and finishes with a prayer.

From the service of Grace M. Fable, president of the Topeka Chapter of the National Military Sisterhood of America and mother of Frank Fable, Bty. A 130th FA, 35th Division.
