Americans Should
Lie Where They Fell,
Advice of Pershing
Washington, Aug. 20.—General
Pershing In a cablegram to the War
Department has expressed the
opinion that bodies of American
soldiers who died abroad should be
left near where they fell.
"I believe that, could these sol
diers speak for themselves, they
would wish to be left undisturbed,
where, with their comrades, thoy
fought the last fight," he said.
"Those who rest In England gave
their lives in the same cause and
their remains represent the same
salvation as those" who lie on the
"The graves of our soldiers con
stitute, if they are allowed to re
main, a perpetual reminder to our
allies of the liberty and Ideals upon
which the greatness of America
rests. Recommend that none of our
dead be removed from Europe un
less their nearest relatives so de
mand after a full understanding of
all the sentimental reasons against
such removal."
