I should like to join a society of World War Veterans devoted to the following propositions:
I. No pensions at any time to any soldiers who came through the war unscratched.
II. Every consideration for those who were actually disabled by war wounds or disease.
The motto of this society might be: "We consider the honor of having been selected for the Army a sufficient reward." I think that such a society could recruit hundreds of thousands from among the non-gold-bricking element of the late A. E. F.
