President F.D. Roosevelt - December 8, 1941
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy,
The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked
by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan
As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy,
I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense...
With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people,
we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God."
President F.D. Roosevelt - January 25, 1941
The words below were placed in the New Testament for soliders, and was written by FDR:
To the Armed Forces:
"As Commander-In-Chief I take pleasure in commending the
reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States.
Throughout the centuries men of many faiths and diverse origins
have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel and inspiration.
It is a fountain of strength and now, as always,
an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul."
Very Sincerely yours,
Franklin D. Roosevelt
