This is another of my caches designed to recognize and pay tribute to the various United States Armed Forces that have, are, and will defend the USA. The lives, limbs, time and effort that have gone into this honorable “profession” cannot ever be forgotten. One of the best-written and spoken tributes was President Abe Lincoln’s address given at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863. While the first two paragraphs address the time it was spoken—pay attention to the last paragraph. It is timeless!
Words that I feebly attempt to put down on this site can not say it better.
|Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
There are occasionally some muggles walking in the area so keep your stealth cape handy. This is a unusual size and type cache - it probably can be described as a medium to large. It initially includes the following (or more) items
- Log Book with Pen
- Pinball Machine
- Endless Summer Necklace
- More Beads
- Sharks Teeth
- More Dinosaurs
- and anything more I can put in
- There is room for much, much more!
IT LOOKS LIKE THE CACHE IS NOW AGAIN SECURE. THE FORMER MUGGLED STATUS IS NOW REMOVED. I have replaced the log book. If you find the cache and the book is missing, email me with the cache description and then log it as found. If I have any questions, I will email you back.
FREEBE HINT - The cache is not a rock or cement!
