Martin Chapter Mission Statement
(from General George Washington)
"You have worn yourself
out with fatigue and hardship, but we know not how to spare you.
You will render that service to the cause of liberty and to your
country which you probably can never do under any other
circumstances. The present is emphatically the crisis which
is to decide our destiny."
