Volume 7, No. 40 OROFINO, IDAHO Friday, Jan. 3, 1919 WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES FOR THE FLAG The Chicago Tribune well says that "To the men who have gone through the trial of battle we give our thanks and admiration, but we must also real ize that the men who did not 'get across' were ready and would also have given themselves to the glory of the flag and the success of our cause." The finest tribute to these disappoint ed soldiers we have seen was paid in the following official communication in the North American Review's War Weekly: > in In the performance of mili tary duty to one's country in time of war it is not for the citizen 1 . called to the colors to select the kind of servee to be done by him. One who has willingly and loyally responded to the call to arms and who lias put his best efforts, men tal and physical, into the training, and performed all military dutie: required of him to the best of his ability, standing ready always to make the supreme sacrifice of life itself, if need be, has done all that a good citizen and soldier could do to insure the successful prosecution of the war. 2 Altlio I appreciate how keenly you feel the disappointment of your failure to secure duty overseas in the actual battle area, I know you rejoice, together with all Ameri cans, in the prospect of a righteous and just peace imposed upon the enemy and the termination of the terrible conflict which has involved the whole civilized world. You have done your best. You have cheerful ly and loyally discharged the clear duty of every citi. n in time of war and your work ha been part of the great national efi ed in securing a victorious peace. You are discharged from the army because your services are no longer required in the present emer gency. place in civil life all the better for the training you have had, and 1 feel sure you will take with you a better and higi rr appreciation of the obligations of citizenship, in cluding -tire-obligation of every man to be trained, prepared and ready to render service to the nation in war as well as in peace. It bore the tignature of Major j. which has aid Ö. You will return to your General Leonard Wood still major who trained the two divi jreneral sions pronounced by foreign officers the most effective, and who himself was brutally cheated out of his clear right to command at least his own devoted soldiers abroad.
