Let Us Remember That
We Have Much To Be Thankful For-
LET US BE THANKFUL that we attained a decisive Victory that
j freedom and decency still live that America was untouched by
destruction that we had a united will to carry on that we had
leaders of great vision that we had men and women of courage!
Let us never forget, however, that we barely attained the victory!
Let us never forget that Germany was a few months behind us in
developing the atomic bomb. Let us never forget that on innumerable
occasions in both wars, our battles were won with very slender margins.
Your personal thankfulness for the Victory will be measured by
