SCU Roosevelt speaking.
"The Armistice with Italy has been concluded. It is a great victory for the United Nations but it is also a great victory for the Italian people. After years of war, suffering and degradation the Italian people are at last coming to the day of liberation from their real enemy, the Nazis."
CU Roosevelt speaking.
"Nobody knows when total victory will come but we do know the harder we fight now, the more might and power that we direct at the enemy now the shorter the war will be and the smaller the sum total of sacrifice. Every dollar that you invest in the Third War Loan, is your personal message of defiance to our common enemies of the ruthless savages of Germany and Japan and it is your personal message of faith and good cheer to our Allies, to all the men at the front. God Bless them."
