Fraternal ribbon of light-blue silk. The Sons of Veterans was an Allied Order of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Union soldiers' veterans organization. Ribbon was given to all attendees of the state encampment at Hutchinson, Kansas in 1891. Front of ribbon also features the Sons of Veterans emblem with the group's motto, Filii Veteranorium- Gratia Del Servatus, which is Latin for "Sons of Veterans- Preserved by the Grace of God." The donor (Grant Harrington) was a member of the Sons of Veterans, General Crook Camp No. 169 of Hiawatha. He probably acquired this ribbon while attending the encampment for which it was issued.
