“Ask the Joes in the front lines!” “…Ask that kid on the stretcher!” “…Ask those who bury our dead.”
“They know. Every G I. Joe knows “This is the Big show. This is the pay-off. This is the one that counts. “Sure, we’re going to take’em. But it’s going to cost us plenty…thousands and thousands of lives…billions and billions of dollars. “That’s the price we must pay for a decent world. – a world in which we and our children can live in peace. We G.I.’s will furnish the bodies. Will you furnish the dough?”

Stu’s Notes: I think the reason our Union Hotel fire made the Stars and Stripes is the fact that young Pfc. Morris Tims was killed there. Please support Our Troops, remember we are at War. That’s about it for this week.
