Things I'm Thankful For-The Military
Since this is the day before Veteran's Day, I want to thank all the men and women who laid their lives on the line so we can have the freedoms we do. There have been a number of veterans in my family starting with the Revolution. My father met my mother during WWII. He was stationed in Ft. Lee, Virginia and she worked in the USO. My husband was in the Navy in Vietnam.
I love the way people are now thanking vets for their service. When my husband came back from Nam, he wasn't treated with respect. He said this doesn't entirely make up for it, but it helps.
To all veterans, I give a heartfelt thank you!
Around two 'o clock that afternoon, Sam came in to see them. “Well, we know who the man is. He was identified by his wife and brother. He's Abner Wells and works as a bookkeeping clerk at First National Bank.”
Amos stroked his mustache. “That doesn't sound like a wild-eyed pagan to me. Did you get a chance to question his wife?”
“She's Lidia and was quite upset as you may guess. I asked her if she knew about the spiritualist group and she didn't know anything about it.”
“How about his brother?”
“His brother is Calvin Wells. He's a liner captain working for a passenger company and he said he never heard of a group like that.”
Sarah was silent for a moment. “It's possible she's covering up something. Seems to me if a model citizen was involved in a group like that, they wouldn't want it general knowledge what they were doing.”
Sam glanced at her. “You may be right. I'm going to the bank to question people who knew Wells there. Since you're doing all this research on spiritualism, could you find a way to get into one of these groups?”
Sarah thought for a moment. “Maybe it would be better for me to work undercover. Amos would still be well known in the community.”
Amos studied her. “As long as they don't try to sacrifice you. Then I will have something to say.”
“I could disguise myself. Kata could help me with that.” Her cousin worked in costuming at the Golden North theater.
Sam nodded. “If you do, keep me informed of where you go and what you do. That way we can keep an eye on you.”
