Fraternal ribbon composed of smaller red-white-blue ribbon and larger gold ribbon. The Sons of Veterans was an Allied Order of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Union soldiers' veterans organization. This ribbon was given to all attendees of the national encampment at Davenport, Iowa, in 1894. The red-white-blue portion of the ribbon features the Sons of Veterans emblem containing the group's motto, Filii Veteranorium- Gratia Dei 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.
