    “Under a marker in Arlington National Cemetery lies a young man, Martin Treptow, who left his job in a small-town barber shop in 1917 to go to France with the famed Rainbow Division. There, on the Western front, he was killed trying to carry a message between battalions under heavy fire. We're told that on his body was found a diary. Under the heading, "My Pledge," he had written these words:
    “‘America must win this war. Therefore, I will work; I will save; I will sacrifice; I will endure; I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.’"
    -President Ronald Reagan, Inaugural Address, 1984

    “The years slip by but each merely adds to my loyalty and devotion to the 'Rainbow.'
    “I have served with many troops, in many wars and many lands, but none who surpassed them in courage, efficiency or stamina.”
    -General of the Army Douglas MacArthur,
    written address to the Rainbow Division
    Veterans Association, July, 1962
