Post-WWII - 1946, Newsreel: D-Day 2nd Anniversary; NYC PAL Outing; Banana Harvest; Indy 500 Title: Eisenhower Says We Must Back Victory. Military Chief of Staff Ike seated at desk, SOF: “Two years ago on D-Day the American soldier again proved his outstanding worthiness as a fighting man. No obstacle could stop him, no enemy could withstand his outstanding courage, a determination, & will to win. We have yet to complete the job he so well advanced at such great cost; for victory in war is barren until a secure peace has been established. Young men who have not yet done their share must now come forward to help bear the burden. May the memory of what the American fighting men accomplished inspire in us a high resolve to see the job thru. We, whose strength did so much to win the shooting war, cannot afford to become laggard now. That we owe to every man who fell on D-Day & on so many other fields throughout the world.” 06:16:15 Title: Cops And Kids.
