The War is On
UE are already in a shooting war.

message of President Roosevelt to
the nation on Navy Day.

now engaged in building a huge
two-ocean navy, and it is the reason
Navy Secretary Knox is emphasiz
ing the importance of building up
the navy personnel to keep pace
with the launching of new ships.

seamen go to the firing line. But
they are there, already. It is for
everyone now to see that they do
not fail. To do this, their numbers
must be strengthened, and the home
forces must provide the food, cloth
ing and equipment vital to the war's
