Resolution Concerning Moral Conditions In Military Camps Abroad

Well authenticated reports, coming through enlisted men, officers, news reporters and others, establish beyond doubt the fact that moral and social conditions in American military camps in Europe and the Orient, involving both enlisted men and officers, are such as to bring disgrace upon the name of our country, and fear and grief to the hearts of parents who have given their sons to the service.

We recommend, therefore, that the Convention add its voice to the protest that rises from the whole nation and urge that the military authorities do all in their power to establish and maintain decency of conduct among all our military forces, at the same time commending the action of General McNarney and others who are engaging in efforts to accomplish this end.
