“I pay supreme tribute to our officers and soldiers of the line. When I think of their heroism, their patience under hardships, their unflinching spirit of offensive action, I am filled with emotions which I am unable to express. Their deeds are immortal and they have earned the eternal gratitude of our country.”
—General John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, Commander in Chief of the American Expeditionary Force
