On Memorial Day we pay homage to those
Americans who lost their lives in the service
of their Country. These were loyal citizens,
committed to the principles which seemed just
and right. They were willing, even in the
face of death, to express unfaltering fidelity
and love for their Country. For the seventh
time in our relatively brief history, men are
again making the supreme sacrifice.
We in America separate the functions of
Church and State. We do not, however, sep
arate the significance of religion from the
total life of the Nation. Thus, as we muster
all our resources for the present engagement
against oppression, and we set out to free the
World from bondage and establish a World
more compatible to the principles of right, of
justice, of freedom, we think of Memorial
Day with greater significance than ordinarily.
We are summoned to remember! If we
could only learn from the experiences of the
past, perhaps there would not need to be re
currences such as our present war. But, re
gardless of the past, we have undertaken a
mission of the present—a mission in which
we will not fail. We have faith, as persons
who stand in a noble and religious tradition,
that in God’s World, righteousness will
triumph. We are on the side of righteousness!
It is faith in God that has kept us a Nation.
It is faith in God that gives us the unconquer
able spirit to win. It will be faith in God that
will, if we but allow it, have future genera
tions say about us “they fought and died for
what they believed to be right and they have
not died in vain.”
From “Life With Father” to life with Uncle
Sam was the big step taken by Cadet Richard
