Pulaski allow a few moments of their time to read the following prayer: AN AMERICAN LEGION PRAYER FOR OUR PRISONERS OF WAR Lord, shelter the prisoners of war in Southeast Asia. Open the hearts and minds of their captors theft they may be restored to their homes and loved ones. Each has carried the burden of battle. Each has discharged an obliga- tion of his country. Each has been subjected to haz- ard, pain, and imprisonment beyond the lot of the soldier. 0 Lord, these gallant men who bear so great a burden must not be forsaken. God of Justice to whom we pray, Thy compassion we be: seech; Lift thcir burden, give them strength and strike the shackles that deny them free- dom. In accordance with the Amer- ican Legion, the following ad- dresses may be used to forward any letters concerning the Viet Nam P.O.W.'s. Aleksy, Nikolayevich Kosygin, Chairmn, U.S.S.R. Council of Ministers, Moscow, U.S.S.R. Andrey Andreyevich Gromyko, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mos- cow, U.S.S.R. Nikolay Vikterorevich Podgorny, Chairman, Presidium of U.S.S.R. Supreme Soviet, Moscow, U.S.S. R. Semen Alglreyevich Skechkov, Chairman, Committee for For- eigh Economic Relations, Mos- cow, U.S.S.R. The following is a suggested form letter. We really believe it would do just as much good to express your own individual i- deas and beliefs in your own handwriting to any of the above addresses. Dear The people of the United States - while varying in opinion on the Vietnam conflict - are un- varying in their desire and de: termination that U. S. pdsouers of wag receive the basic, humani- tarian treatment guaranteed by the Geneva Conventions. SPECIMEN Further, becau U. S. prison- ors of war in Southeast Asia have lost all military and intelligence value and because settlement of the Pew problem on both sides could provide a new basis for ne- gotiations and renewed trust on the part of the conflicting no. tions, 1 suggest that the Russian government request the immedi- ate repatriation of all prisoners of war in Southeast Asia. I strongly believe that your intercession in tiffs cause would serve the best interests of all mankind. (Your signature) tIjZABETH HAlmt00I FORMER lmmDXN'r INES IN CALIF00 Mrs. Elizabeth O. Harden.
