They are in the trenches in France, they are sailing the U-boat infested seas, they are going "over the top" in the face of German cannon and machine gun fire. Many, many more of our boys are now training and will soon be in France, and more are yet to be called. Will You Help to Bring Them Back? Will you help to provide them with the things they need, with clothes and food and munitions, that they may complete as quickly as possible the terrible task assigned to them? Will you support our boys while they are fighting for us, fighting the German autocracy that seeks to destroy our ideals of liberty and justice? We will do it by buyg bons of t Third Lib ty Loa by buyging afl these bonds we can; by making such sacrifices as are necessary to do this. That will be our support for Our Boys.
