EVERY DAY you see some of Omaha's soldiers on
the streets, ready For whatever orders may come to
them Every night in your home your children tell
of this hoy or that boy who has enlisted. You think
of the lad you saw going to school last year and can scarcely
believe that he is now "somewhere in the United States" on
duty In your defense, and you ask yourself what you can do.
Join the Red Goss and do something for that boy! De
- pend upon it your membership In the Red Cross will directly
; Kelp some one of your family or some friend of yours. That
boy may be wounded; he may be sick in a military hospital,
or he may be just lonesome. Whatever his need, be it nurs
ing or just the little touch of home comfort and home remem
brance, the Red Cross will supply it and your membership
will help do the work. You do not need to lift your finger, .
' personally the Red Goss organization is prepared to carry
oulyour part after, you join.
Wherever there is human need the Red Cross flag goes
to the front and stays there. Each one of us knows that the de
mands on the Red Cross are going to grow greater every day
, from now on until the end of the war. Not only must the Red
Cross continue its work at the front and in the hospital, but
it must be kept prepared to meet emergencies other than those
of conflict.
i" New York has 125,000 members. Omaha must have
20,000 members. Let's move right away NOW and show
the world what the Omaha spirit is and what it does by rolling
up 20,000 members for Omaha Chapter of the American
Red Cross.
Remember that the work of the American Red Cross
is particularly for American soldiers. The president of the
United States is at its head. Its accounts are audited by the
War Department. Its flag is recognized on every battlefield.
The big thought is that by joining the Red Cross we can
do something, and do it now, and do it for the benefit of your
countrymen.
