ADDRESS - IWO JIMA
lie men who loved America because their ancestors
ago helped in her founding
And other men who loved her with equal passion because they
or their own fathers escaped from
oppression to her blessed shores.
Here lie officers and men, Negroes and whites, righ men and poor-
Here are Protestants, Catholics, and Jews-together.
Here no man prefers another because of his faith
or despises him because of his color.
Here there are no quotas of how many from each group
are admitted or allowed.
Among these men there is no discrimination. No prejudice. No
Theirs is the highest and purest democracy.
Roland B. Gittelshohn
