内容記述・解説/Description:“I wonder what Jim’s doing now!” / The anthem they’re singing . . . it was always one of Jim’s favorites. / How handsome he looked in his uniform when he was home. He wore a sergeant’s stripes but I shall always think of him as my baby. As we talked together, he seemed much older and more assured—but all the time I was thinking of how he used to say his prayers every evening at my knee. / Yes, Jim has really grown up. He has seen action in foreign lands. He has seen, too, with his own eyes, what has happened to the people of those countries. / “Until I actually saw it,” he wrote, “I never could have believed what complete regimentation can do to a people. It was done so cleverly and so gradually by their leaders. The people traded rights as free citizens for glittering promises of security. Within a few years they had not only lost their freedoms but their security, too.” / I guess Jim never fully realized until now what it means to live as a free American. He says he knows now what he is really fighting for—to keep America free. / At first, I only half understood what he meant. It’s hard to believe, but he is actually worried about what’s going on back here in America. / Jim’s final words in that same letter will always stay with me. / “Mother,” he wrote, “you can depend on me to handle our family’s share of the fighting over here. But I’ve talked it over with lots of the fellows I know. And we’re expecting you folks back home to keep alive the things we’re fighting for . . . / “I want to make my way in the world on my own, Mother, like you and Dad have done—after we’ve cleaned up this mess. All I want is a fair chance to get ahead . . . without needless interference. When I get back, I merely want the opportunities that only our American way of life can give.” / Our American system of enterprise has helped change this country from a colony to the world’s greatest nation within a few generations. It has helped maintain our freedom to work, worship, speak, think, play and vote as we please. In fighting a way to restore freedom to the world, let us be sure that we shall keep our own. / “In fighting a war to restore freedom to the world, let us be sure that we shall keep our own.” These words, from the message above, are words that every American should remember and act on if he wants to stay free. More than 30 million Americans will have the opportunity to read them in the July 15 Saturday Evening Post and other leading publications.
