Sone people say that the people at hone are not interested, that they are
playing politics, and nany other things which my tend to discourage you, but
I toll you, as the father of a soldier, that such people are few and far bo-
tv;een, that the people of this country arc behind you 100^, and you nay rest
assured that wo will see you through regardless. Wo cannot suffer the toil
of battle or the nany hardships you are asked to endure fighting the eneny
but wo can see that you get everything you need, and wo will do just that.
If you fight on the battle front, wo vji 1T fight on the hono front, and fight
to the last mn, to send you the food, planes, t anks, guns, and pxnminition
Sune people worry about the nurals of the non in the service, tut I can
soe no reason for this, as the soldiers 'vvho cone hone on leave arc the finest
looking non you over hopoci to soe, they are clean, their eyes sparkle, their
step is springy, and their chins are up, and they seen to bo telling the world
they arc proud tu be a part of the arned forces of the greatest country on
earth, ono which has and alv/ ays will fight on the side of right. The look
in their oyes teJJ.s you plainly that they realize they have a hard task before
then, but they will do it so vje.ll that they vj .11 win the adr.iiration of the world.
Keep clean, for it is you boys who vdll have to keep this a free country
when the w ar is uvor, and v;e will need you to help rebuild the world you have
fought so valiantly to save. It is YCUR country and you must keep it yours.
aei.ionbcr, wo are thinlcing of you all the tirio, praying for you, asking
God to take care of you and send you back to us when you have won the fight.
Yours for victory.
