For tbis Invasion has only begun — before our 'fighters lies a hard and bloody task, one that demands all .their courage, backed by all your failli in their ultimate victory. That faith will be tested many times in this invasion—in grim struggles, set-backs, possibly even temporary defeats. It will be up to you to rcmem- ION! ber that early victories usually only mean more savage opposition from a J'oc made more bitter, more ruthless as the shadow of his doom grows larger—up to you to keep that faith in days and nights of gloom as well as in hours of triumph. There is little that you can do to show that you' realize what then must face, perhaps for many months. But one thing you can do—back the attack with every dollar you can spare! Let the Bonds you buy in this greatest of Drives be the measure of your belief in their ultimate victory!
