The world war through which wc have so re
cently passed is the greatest event in the world's
history since the beginning of the Christian era.
The part which Oregon has played in this world
war will he remembered long after we and our
children arc dead. Our heritage of this war will
be our record of patriotic achievement, and this
record will be made in two ways: It will be the
record of our boys who were in the service, and
the record of those of us who stayed at home and
tried to do our part by supporting our govern
ment and the boys.
Oregon's military record stands head and shoul
ders above that of any other state. Oregon was
first in the enlistment and had a larger percentage
of its population under arms than any other state
in the Union. The records of the old Third Oregon,
the Coast Artillery and the 91st Division arc records
which will never die and of wljich every Oregon
citizen may well be proud. The record of Lieut.
Burgard, who was five times "wounded and who led
250 Oregon boys over the top, of whom 218 were
left upon the battlefield after an hour and twenty
minutes of fighting, is only one of a number of in
stances of valor by Oregon men which will never
be forgotten. Lieut. Dorris made his way to
brigade headquarters after having his lower Jaw
shot away in order that another officer might be
detailed to his company, all of the other officers
having been killed. Although he was (Jecoratcd with
the croix de guerre for this act of heroism, the best
appreciation of this act will be fcfund in a never
dying recollection of it by the people of Oregon.
There is no instance of recordvwhere Oregon troops
faltered under fire, and the record of our boys in
service is 100 per cent, perfect.
So far the record of Oregon's citizenry in its
patriotic duty has been perfect. We have been
foremost in patriotic drives of every kind, having
twice led the nation in Liberty loan campaigns. It
is a distinct privilege for those of us who stayed
at home to be permitted to complete the wonderful
record of our boys by making a 100 per cent, record
in our duties of citizenship. ' Yet it is a tremendous
responsibility, as the people of the state would
never live down the disgrace of tainting our mili
tary record by failure to lead all other states in this
last great patriotic endeavor.
