THE BAYONET: CAMP LEE, VA., FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1918 his dependents by way of compensation or by way of insurance are absolutely independent of each other. The fact that a man receives insurance will not in any degree diminish the proper compensation due him. Neither can the fact that he has endeavored on his own part to provide against the future for himself and dependents by purchasing government insurance result in any stoppage or diminuition of any portion of his proper compensation. The soldier should appreciate that it is not only his duty, but that it is also his privilege to take the fullest advantage of the provisions of this law, and, if he does, he can rest secure in the belief that no matter what happens both he and his dependents will always be provided for, and comfortably provided for, in the future.
