"Sixty thousand of our American Boys lie among the poppies of Flanders' Fields in France. To them only is the war over. They have paid the price in full. To countless other thousands of these boys returning home maimed and broken the war will still go on; they will be paying the price every day, during the remainder of their lives. Can we who stayed at home carelessly and thoughtlessly assume the 'war is over' attitude until our balance of account is paid - until we have redeemed our pledge - to bear the final cost no matter what its amount?"
This poster is "one of 176 advertisements inserted simultaneously in every newspaper in the State of Oregon on behalf of the success of the Victory Liberty Loan". The information included on the poster describes the "Victory Liberty Loan" as the "Parent Bond of Them All" and draws the Men & Women of Oregon up to participate... "The imprint of fame upon the name of our fair state will turn to a stain of shame if we do not meet the obligation this Victory Loan represents. You are face to face with the real test of citizenship - true Americanism. Let this test find you measuring up one hundred per cent loyal."
