Fulfillment of that pledge has been accomplished. Start of the long awaited assault against the Philippine Islands brings back to us forcibly today the heartbreaking and heartrending battle which was fought for five long months, night and day, by Jonathan Mayhew Wainwright IV and his gallant American and Filipino soldiers. For five long months they were subjected without let-up to the ceaseless Japanese attack from the sea, from the air, and on the ground.

The Japanese attack of 1941 on the Island of Luzon drove simultaneously from the north and the south against Manila. "Skinny" Wainwright and his men fought back stubbornly inch by inch. They slept in the snake - infested jungles. They had no aerial protection or reconnaissance. For 24 hours a day, every day for five months, they had to meet that endless vicious Nipponese assault. They saw their comrades blown to bits and dismembered. Wainwright knew there was no hope of rescue. He and his gallant men fought to give us precious minutes in which to prepare. And at the frightful sacrifice of pain, blood and death they gained for us those minutes. Our warriors who accomplished that superhuman battle must be liberated and avenged.
