Our work of getting positions for discharged soldiers and sailor, has gotten away to a good start. All over the United States the War Department is securing the hearty co-operation of all the wel fare services. Chambers of Commerce, labor unions, employers' as sociations, and many national, state, and civic bodies, all of whom are at liberty to use the machinery of the United States Employ ment Service towards hooking up the discharged men of the Army and Navy with a good job. We have also had the patriotic assistance of employers, corpora tions, firms, and individuals, in the matter of reinstating their old men in the jobs they held before they went to war. I may also say that between 70 per cent and 80 per cent of our honorably dis rharged soldiers and sailors have iiie offer of their pre-war jobs. The hero of today is not to become the hobo of tomorrow. Until everyone of these returning men is back In his old job or a better one we have not discharged our whole duty towards them. In this work of placing our soldiers and sailors we have been loy ally co-operated with by the great majority of American employers In return for this the War and Navy departments have prepared a handsome citation which is issued to all employers who have as sured the departments that they will gladly re-employ everybody who formerly worked with them and left to serve in the Army or Navy during the Great War. This citation carries with it permis sion for the holder to display on his firm's service flag the shield of the United States as a symbol that he will fulfill his obligations to the men who went to the defense of the country at the time of Its peril. The citation is signed by the Secretary of War, the Secretary of the Navy, and myself, assistant to the Secretary of War. It is hand somely engraved and engrossed with the name of the recipient. There are no strings to it All we ask is that the employer write an application for such a citation, stating that he will re-employ his old service men, and address me in care of the War Department, Washington, D.
