Attached is an article by The American Legion Weekly correspondent Rex Lapham concerning the last issue (until the next war) of the The Stars and Stripes. The article recorded many sentimental remarks, words of praise and seldom heard facts about the history of the Doughboy newspaper:
"The task of The Stars and Stripes became easy. The editorial staff just hung on the coat-tails of the irresistible Doughboys and was carried to glory. Any group of scribes who could not have got out a readable newspaper, with the American infantry providing the news, would probably have been shot."
