Excerpt

The Stars and Stripes in the Service of Humanity

"WE have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be satisfied when those rights have been as secure as the faith and the freedom of the nation can make them."

From President Wilson's Message to Congress, April 2, 1917.
