A bald eagle with outstretched wings is below the text. There is an oval shaped window with the picture of an unidentified African Amwerican soldier in uniform below the statement and the eagle.

On either side of the photograph is an oval insert of President Woodrow Wilson on the left and General JJ Pershing on the right.
