If I'm dying on the battlefield, (it'd) be handy for the nearest chaplain to know how I'd like to be escorted out of this world. I appreciate the fact that my religious affiliation is printed on my dog tags.
My name is Shane Foshee and I am a singer from Mississippi. I wanted to share with you a song I recorded as a tribute to all our veterans and soldiers

I was not aware until 2 & 1/2 years ago; that my Maternal G-Great Grandfather, and his four brothers had fought in the U.S. Civil War!!! That was the "Shock"; now for the "AWE", I just found out within the last year that both of my Maternal 4th Great Grandfathers fought in the American Revolutionary War/U.S. War of Independence!!!
Since I was a U.S. Army Infantryman from 1984-92; this seems like a WOW factor X 10!!! I have a copy of a document from the Library of Va. that shows the proof of my G-Great Grandfather; John Edward Jackson, and his 4 brothers that served in the U.S. Civil War!!!
Through Ancestry.Com; and other Websites I have found that I have 24 Ancestors both Paternal and Maternal that served in the Civil War!!! I also found that another branch of my Maternal side of the family had 3 soldiers in the War of 1812, and 1 in the Mexican-American War 1847-48!!!
Is there any way that I may forward the Civil War document of the 5 Jackson brothers???!!!
