At Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, a surgeon raises his scalpel to begin a delicate brain operation. Somewhere in England an American airman gives a final tug at his parachute straps and climbs aboard for Hamburg and points East. This is your doing. Tor one-thirtieth of a second the $75 you put out for a §100 war bond is paying for the war. It's paying the salaries of all the generals and all the admirals and all the buck privates. It's paying the wife of the sergeant in the German prison camp. Your money is buying all the gasoline and oil, all the bread . and milk, the penicillin, oranges, ammunition, hot coffee, the lima beans, peanuts, shoe leather, and elbow grease used by our army in all of the 40 odd countries where it is stationed. You're paying Sincbaldo Lelli* out at Chrysler's, Bob Mcstach* ovct at Exccllo, the janitor at Willow Run, and Dean George Altenburg.'who has left the halls of our Junior College to train fliers out Mount Clemens way. For one-thirtieth of a second the war is your responsibility. It rests entirely on your shoulders. Snap your fingers and think of all the things going on all over the world while sound is in your ears. It's an extremely short'time, to be sure, but it's the thirtieths of seconds and hundredths of seconds that ate turning Berlin under and chasing the Japs from New Britain.
