TO ALL HANDS: On this Thanksgiving Day as we enjoy the traditional feast in comfort and security, let us also be mindful of those many other blessings which we of America so richly enjoy - freedom of religion, of speech, and of opinion unequaled by the citizens of any other nation on earth - opportunity to build the future for ourselves, our families, and our country in the way of true peace and prosperity - these and many more are uniquely ours today. May we show forth our gratitude to Almighty God by resolving once again to protect this freedom and realize this opportunity as the most cherished possession of our lives. A. B. Vosseller, Captain, U.S.N., Commanding.
