THE BRITISH ISLES STILL STAND You were the principal visitors to these Islands in the days before the war and never did you travel far as strangers, for continually you met reminders of our common heritage. Place names, alone, made you feel at home. But much more than that, birthplaces, ances tral homes and shrines, honored by the mem ory of the founders of the United States, served but to emphasize our kinship. In peacetime when you come again, time honored sites must share their age-old interest with other and more recent shrines of pil grimage. Cities which stood up to the fury of the enemy. Cities, towns and villages and whole areas of our countryside where your brave forces made their wartime homes. With what pride will fathers show their sons, and sons their parents and friends, the places where they prepared themselves to fight and conquer the common enemy in their desire for the liberation of mankind and he freedom of the world.
