These naval losses in the Pacific are alarming! I demand accountability!
Senator Peter G. Gerry - Rhode Island (D)
I assure that plans are in place to prevent such critical losses in the future. Our boys are laying their lives on the lines every day, and no one is more aware of this than we are. The objectives that they gave their lives making way for our boots on the ground may free the world from the tyranny of the Nazi oppressors in quick succession, and their memory and their loss will not be in vain. I implore you to not make the families of those lost grieve more by turning their husbands, or their fathers, or their brothers into political capital. They were men, they were soldiers, and they will be honored.
