Aboard ship on way to States by Carr Hooper

  • A million G.I. have suffered because of this and a million more will yet suffer. This then I say as an American who has paid the most terrible price of an American citizen -- we are great, and good and rich and love peace and right as Mother people. Our destiny lies westward and it has been neglected, and I have seen old Glory suttied, muddied, and selling at $35.00 on the $100. I have seen our people mocked and scorned by the nationals, and I have seen us die miserably. Never again must this happen, must we lesson our role less than it is now. Instead we must always strive to bring life and living and glorious, blessed Peace and Freedom from Fear to 700 million miserable war weary and war frightened but deserving Asiatics who want Peace and Justice and their right to live their lives as they wish. And again before I gleeful relate the last episodes of the last month I insist to American and Americans that we here in America have insufficient hate, and will to carry this war to Japan, as it should be conducted. We have not the will to destroy. If our million G.I. and Marines and sailors could conduct this war as they wish there would not be one Jap alive left to plague the Pacific. I talked with hundreds I saw them wounded, and returned from the battlefield, I saw my newly made friends, your boys and mine, who fought Manila battle stricken dumb with the hellish brutality of thes yellow people. I saw a tough six foot soldier with tears rolling down his dirty, blackened face. He held a Fillipiano baby girl in his arms who had been tossed by a Japanese bayonet as she ran from a home afire form Japan se applied gasoline. We saw this mad death of Manila and while their terrible thing was done by an embattled Japanese army – charge Japan with more deliberate crimes. I charge Japan with every violation of every law and decency according to civilized standards and Japan has counted herself civilized and cannot and must not be excused her acts.
