Nearly two centuries ago, men of many nations loaded all
their possessions on ox-carts and adventured into the Virgin
West of the United States. In the sweat of their brows always,
and in their life-blood sometimes, they subdued Nature to their
needs and built their homes.
And then this people of the New world turned their
pioneering drive to make a society in which all men are free.
These are the people who have committed themselves through
their President to Defend human freedom all over the earth.
The United States has sent its fighting men to India as crusaders in
the cause of liberty - pledged to crush those who would enslave mankind.
