Page:When You Go Home Take This Book With You.djvu/6
YOU HAVE won the war against autocracy. The fight against venereal disease—as base a hypocrite, as foul a murderer as any Hun—has only begun.
You have demonstrated your prowess on the battle field. It is now your privilege to show America and the world that you possess the courage, the purpose, the moral stamina, to "carry on" the fight now conducted by the Public Health Service, in co-operation with your State Board of Health, against syphilis and gonorrhea.
This campaign will be carried into the prosaic routine of your daily lives, in order that the world may be made safe for posterity.
- Surgeon General, U. S. Public Health Service.
