"…our first thoughts, of course -- thoughts of gratefulness and deep obligation -- go out to those of our loved ones who have given their lives so that this day of ultimate victory might come and assure the survival of a civilized world."
President Truman following the signing of Japan's official surrender, 1 September 1945
"Almighty God — our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity…
…For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest, they fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people, they but yearn for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home…
…Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy Kingdom."
From President Roosevelt's D-Day prayer to the nation, 6 June 1944
President Eisenhower, announcing the signing of the Korean Armistice, 27 July 1953
