Washington's circular farewell letter to the Army

Before I conclude the subject of public justice, I cannot omit to mention the obligation this country is under, to that meritorious class of veteran non-commissioned officers and privates, who have been discharged for inability…nothing could be a more melancholy and distressing sight, than to behold those who have shed their blood or lost their limbs in the service of their country

—George Washington’s farewell letter to the Army, June 8, 1783
