“To the American Soldier aroused against a nation waging war in violation of all Christian principles.
Our people are fighting in the cause of Liberty.
Hardships will be your lot, but trust in God will give you comfort; temptation will befall you, but the teachings of our Savior will give you strength.
Let your valor as a soldier and your conduct as a man be an inspiration to your comrades and an honor to your country.
-(signed) Pershing, Comdg.”
