Greetings from Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

I have not any photos unfortunately, because I have never been to a National Park. I was just letting you know why I donated to preserve said parks. Which is that I am a service connected disabled veteran and would like to believe that one of my reason for volunteering and serving was to protect our beautiful National Parks. We as the human species in a whole are consuming/destroying our planet at a alarming rate, some nessacery and probably a lot more that is not, yet very few are alarmed. I am happy to believe that our Parks are being cared for with great consideration. Thank you for all that you do for our National Parks and for our future generations in allowing them to experience the beauty, hopefully inspiring them.

Sincerely,
Barrett
