The United States has a reputation of being an ungrateful nation that ignores its veterans, but this was not entirely true of the cavalry survivors of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Many of them enjoyed much notoriety for the remainder of their lives. They were often praised for their courage in the face of long odds, and they deserved much adulation. Although, the Germans and Swiss at the Little Bighorn were thrown into battle, they showed great fortitude in two days of desperate battle. In addition, the thirty-six Germans and five Swiss who fell in battle demonstrated the greatest devotion possible . These were all fine , young men who sacrificed everything to support the policies of their adopted country. The Germans and Swiss at the Little Bighorn represent the proudest tradition of the US Army, and they also did great credit to the nations of their birth.
