Some philospher has said: “It is the spirit in which we act that is the highest matter after all.” A high sense of duty and a distinterested patriotic spirit stirred the heart and nerved the arm of Munford through the four long years of our unequal conflict. This same spirit has made him a useful and exemplary citizen through the years since the war. After all, ‘Peace has her victories no less renowned than war.’

Many an old soldier who never quaked in the fore front of battle, who bravely faced the dangers nature shrinks from, was unable after the struggle to face life's stern duties, where moral courage and patient endurance is no less demanded than under the mortal perils of the battle field.
