“By your exemplary conduct a standard has been established and maintained never before attained by an army. With mind and body as clean and strong as the decisive blows you delivered against the foes, you are soon to return to the pursuits of peace. In leaving the scenes of your victories, may I ask that you  carry home your high ideals and continue to live as you have served – an honor to the principles for which you have fought and to the fallen comrades you leave behind.”


               - - Personal Letter To All AEF Members From General Of The Armies John "Blackjack” Pershing, Written At The End of WWI
