The army has changed In aoan tlty. but not in onallty. We want to dn what you want us to do. That Is what we are for. So you most back It up. I say this because for -44 years I have been In the armv. and, gentle men, for 45 years of that time the army has not had the backing of the American neople. It's only In the last two or three years that the peoo'e have begun to realize the need of this backing.
