General Butler, you were a voice of sanity, reason and truth in a world of greed and corruption. You spoke truth to power, and your words still ring true today. War IS a racket!

General Butler, you have become quite the hero to the Current Anti-War movement for which I am in 100 per cent agreement. Your "Smedley Butler Bench at your Friends Prep school, the Haverford School, is just one honor that people who agree with your comments that "War is a Racket" and your observation about having been "a muscleman for Big Business" and "a gangster for capitalism" are literally all too true. We know that you're right and it is still true. Thank you, General for your courage in telling us the truth. Sorry to say that it is all too rare.

During his Senate campaign, Butler spoke out forcefully supporting the veterans bonus. Veterans of World War I, many of whom had been out of work since the beginning of the Great Depression, sought immediate cash payment of Service Certificates granted to them eight years earlier supported by the General.

I chose these flowers because they are Forget Me Not's. You will never be forgotten by any true American. You gave your all and then some. I salute you Sir for allowing us all to enjoy our freedoms because of the sacrifice you gave to make us free. You are a great American and I hope and pray that your sacrifice is never taken for granted. Hand Salute!

God Bless You (G B Y) and all who do as well the ones which come to view here too! Thank you for your service!+++++Major General Butler had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to twice receive the Medal of Honor, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.........................................The highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I.
