"The) Service Star 'Legion above all other things desires peace on earth, good will towards men, but it does not wish the valor and patriotism of the boys who fought and bled to be forgotten or their memory to be erased. The legion will always take an interest in perpetu-ating the memory of the boys and stimulate a reverence for the cause for which they fought and died. In so doing the legion is also displaying the cruelty, brutality and of war." Mrs. Potter deplored the fact that someone has been so small and so devoid of common decency and reverence for the boys who gave their all in the world struggle as to pry off and carry away the small army and navy emblem decorating the posts around the Memorial tree.
