American Legion convention and General George Marshall appearing before a Senate committee.
General George Marshall speaking SOT
- It seems to me you start off with a very young man as a natural, largest component of our armies. But then there's the question does a man marry and free himself from any other responsibility of the defence of his country. You're carrying it back of course to the question of whether the war should be conducted by bachelors only, and if you took that by and large it would present a very curious situation, one for you gentlemen rather than for me / certainly if you, if you cut us now you inflict a much heavier loss than we anticipated suffering from the German and Japanese, because that is right at the source of the power that we are trying to put into effects. We've been a long time, a long, long time aquiring momentum. I personally think it would be most unfortunate if you kill momentum at this moment
