YOUR POST OF HONOR
You are called to serve as a soldier
in the National Army, because that is
one of your obligations as a citizen of
the United States. The citizens of a
republic must always be ready in the
hour of need -to leave their own homes
and take up arms in defense of their
rights and principles. Otherwise the
Republic could not long continue to
exist. The men who now enter mili military
tary military service deserve the gratitude and
respect of their fellow citizens.
You are doubtless making a heavy
sacrifice in order to perform this duty
to your country. Hundreds of thou thousands
sands thousands of other young men and their
families are face to face with similar
sacrifices. All our citizens will sooner
or later be called upon, each to bear
his or her share of the burden. Men
and women, rich and poor, all alike
must do whatever is; necessary and
must give up whatever is necessary.
For no personal interests or feelings
can be permitted to stand in the way
at a time when the safety and honor
of the country are atstake.
As a citizen soldier you are chosen
for a post of special distinction. Am America
erica America is justly proud of the soldiers
of the past who have won for us the
rights today denied and put in ser
ious danger by the high-handed at attacks
tacks attacks of the German government.
America will be no less proud of you,
as you fight to uphold these rights.
Your personal responsibility is
great. As warfare is today conducted,
the individual soldier counts for more
than ever before. Your own skill and
bravery, no matter how humble your
rank, may easily be important fac factors
tors factors in deciding whether an engage engagement
ment engagement is to be won or lost. You can not
depend upon anyone else to carry this

SOME AMERICAN SOLDIERS
Americans are well-fitted to meet
this test. During the Civil War, at
the battle of Antietam, the 7th Maine
Infantry lay, hugging the ground,
under a furious storm of shot and
shell. Private Knox, who was a won wonderful
derful wonderful shot, asked leave to move
nearer the enemy. For an hour aft afterwards
erwards afterwards his companions heard his
rifle crack every few minutes. His
commanding officer finally, from cur curiosity,
iosity, curiosity, "crept forward to see what he

Maclay, 43d U. S. Volunteer Infantry,
"charged an occupied bastion, saving
the life of an officer in a hand-to-hand
combat and destroying the enemy."
In all these cases medals of honor
were granted. The incidents, howrever,
are typical of the army. Thousands of
similar stories might be told. They
represent the spirit that will inspire
the National Army when the time
comes to show the stuff of which it
Tales of heroic courage can be
found in the annals of all armies and
of all nations. But the American
Army has its own special tradition,
which these incidents illustrate. It is
the tradition of intelligence, self self-reliance,
reliance, self-reliance, and individual daring on the
part of men serving in the ranks.
THE INDIVIDUAL SOLDIER
Other things being equal, an army
made up of self-reliant, thinking men
has a great advantage over a merely
machine-like army, and this is espec especially
ially especially true in present day warfare.
Maj. Gen Hugh L. Scott, Chief of
Staff, U. S. A., remarks on this point:
"The conditions under which mod
ern wars are fought are ever making
increasing demands on the individual
soldier. The individual sol soldier
dier soldier must know how to interpret ac accurately
curately accurately orders and signals, for the
enemy's fire may often so isolate him
from his leader and comrades, per
haps only a step away, that he may
be thrown on his own initiative in
making his actions conform to those
of the whole line; he may have to use
his own judgment in opening fire, in
advancing, in intrenching."
. FAIR PLAY
A second tradition of the American
Army, which need only be mentioned,
is that of fighting fairly and treating
even the enemy with as much human humanity
ity humanity as his own conduct will permit. As
for slaughtering or enslaving the
civilian population of captured terri territory,
tory, territory, attacking prisoners or assault assaulting
ing assaulting women, American soldiers would
as little commit such crimes in time
cf war is in time of peace. In this re respect
spect respect most of the civilized nations of
the world think alike.
FIGHTING FOR RIGHTS AND
There is a third splendid tradition
of the American Army which you will
help to carry forward. It has fought
always and everywhere in defense of
principles and rights never merely
for territory and for power. Even the
Civil War resulted from the clash of
opposing principles the principle of
an indivisible Union upheld by the
North, and that of freedom to with withdraw

For a like high purpose, the Amer-

belief misrepresents and misleads the

DEVELOPING SOLDIERLY QUAL

for each man by lot. An ambitious

There are three basic qualities,
without which no man can be a real

CLARK AND YOUNG CATTS
