The 1918 issue of Ignatian was dedicated to all the students joining the military to fight in World War I. A powerful piece full of patriotism and propaganda, the school called on all its students to serve their country and make their college proud. The magazine featured many photographs of students in uniform and interviews on why they were going to fight. As a poem that accompanied one of these interviews goes, “God bless our boys whom we enshrined / As Freedom’s own in each service star, / And guard them as, in battle line / Or trench or camp, anear or far, / They face the foe with youthful glee / And blench no ‘mid Death’s revelry”. Many of these students never returned. From USF Yearbooks Collection.
