He's an American hero. After fighting bloody battles
in the Pacific, he was home on leave two years ago.
" You may remember seeing his picture. His name is
John Basilone, Marine Gunnery Sergeant. He traveled all
over America, urging every American to buy more bonds.
* He said: "You don't know-you can't know-how
much it means to the boys out there when they hear the
folks back home have just put another War Bond Drive
over the top."
"e: They gave him the Congressional Medal of Honor
and offered him a commission. He didn't want it. "I'm a
plain soldier," he said. "I want to stay one."
"* * Well, he stayed a plain marine-like Joe and Bill and
the fellows down the street. He can't ask you to buy bigger
bonds during the Seventh. He was killed a few weeks ago

on Iwo, just after he had led his assault team to the edge
of an airfield we needed desperately.

- " We can't let him and all our other fighting heroes
down. Remember, last year we had two War Loan Drives
by this time. The Seventh is our personal call to arms-two
drives in one. That's why our quota is large.

Iwo-for Victory-for pride in Anierica.

Let your dollars join the fight in the
MIGHTY SEVENTH WAR LOAN!
