• “We have seen the treacherous use of the ‘fifth column’ by which persons supposed to be peaceful visitors were actually a part of an enemy unit of occupation. Lightning attacks, capable of destroying airplane factories and munition works hundreds of miles behind the lines, are a part of the new technique of modern war . . . We must be strong in heart and mind; strong in our faith… I, too, pray for peace…but I am determined to face the fact realistically that this nation requires also a toughness of moral and physical fiber . . . These are the characteristics of a free people…a people willing to defend a way of life that is precious to them all, a people who put their faith in God.” ~Franklin Roosevelt, December 29, 1940
