From where I sit...
it/ Joe Marsh
You hear a lot of talk about mo-
rale these days___but have you
found many people who knew
exactly what “morale” was?
Well, I was thumbing through
my scrap book the other day,
and I came on this verse I’d like
to pass on to you...
It’s the lift you get from a friendly
A brand new hat in a jaunty style...
A letter from home that the post-
Morale is a lot of little things.
Isn’t it so? Morale is just a lot of
little things. A flower in your
button hole, a word of greeting,
an occasional refreshing glass of
beer with friends.
From where I sit, if we take
care to preserve these little
friendly things that boost mo-
rale, we’ll be doing a lot to help
our country in its time of crisis.
And we’ll boost morale among
our soldiers at the front, too. Be-
cause it’s these “important little
things” that they look forward
to returning to.
