. . . Our sons, pride of our nation, have this day set upon a mighty endeavor…. They will be sore tired, by night and by day, without rest …. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violence of war…. Let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be …. These men are lately drawn from the ways of peace…. They yearn for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home…. Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, They heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.—President Franklin Roosevelt, June 1944
