social clubs have recently re-
ceived a pumber of Christmas
'cards, post cards, and letters in
reply to Christmas cards sent to
American servicemen in Viet
Nam in connection with "Pro-

project of fhe clubs.
The following is a typical ex-

"Hello All You Members,
"You can't guess how wonder-
ful it feels when you get a card
frpm - a, group of young people
backing what we believe to be
right. On your shoulders will rest
the outcome of what we're fight-
ing for here in ,South East Asia.
. I have confidence that as long
as we have young people who
will take the time to express
their sentiments — as you all
have done by sending the cards
— I'm sure we'll always have a
"I believe that, most of the
boys fighting iii Viet. Nam today
know that. .the. demonstrations;
are a. minority, but it' .hurts to
think that only .one American
would or could' think like that.
But if ypu stop' and' think for a
minute,' you'd realize; that only
in a free country can you dem-
onstrate against the government
and not be punished.
- "I-firmly believe, that if Com-
munism is not halted here it will
have to be stopped on American

most of you meri are at the age
that some of you will be called
to defend Freedom before this
conflict Is over, but I believe
you'll be ready, because, as you
know, anything good comes
high. Our freedom was not given
to us. It had to be earned with
blood. And it will take blood to
keep it! Oh, it would be nice to
sit back and enjoy life without a
care but there is always some-
thing to get in the way. .
"I really didn't meaii to Write
like this, but your card indicated'
to me that you are a group who

would find a poor ground to grow
on. But, as long as there is pov-
erty and. ignorance in the world,
it will have fertile soil -to thrive .
