In the foreground is an image of General Pershing on horseback, leading his troops. Two soldiers behind him hold flags: a U.S. flag and a red flag with a gold emblem. Hovering in the background is a hazy image of medieval crusaders on white horses, carrying heart-shaped shields with cross images on them.
