Men who until'yesterday or last week laughed with us, joked with us, trained with us. Men who were on the same ships with us, and went over the sides with us as we prepared to hit the beaches of this island. Men who fought with" us and feared with us.

WWII and was a m~mber of the Ameri- ground there may lie the man who could have. discovered the cure for cancer. Under one of these Christian crosses, or beneath a Jewish Star of David, there may now rest a man who was destined to be a great prophet-to find the way, per- haps, for all to live in plenty, with poverty and hardship for none. Now they lie here silently in this sacred soil, and we gather to consecrate this earth in their memory. It is not easy to do so. Some of us have buried our closest friends here. We saw these men killed before our very eyes. Any one of us might have died in their places. Indeed, some of us are alive and breathing at this very monent only because men who lie here beneath us had the. courage and strength to give their lives for ours. To speak in memory of such men as these is not.easy. Of them too can it be said with utter truth: "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here. It can never forget what they did here." No, our poor power of speech can add nothing to what these men and the other dead Of our Division who are not here have already done. All that we even hope to do is follow their example. To show the same selfless cot/rage in peace that they did in war. ,To swear that by the grace of God and the stubborn strength and power of human will, their sons and ours shall never suffer these pains again~ These men have done their jobs well. They have paid the ghastly price of free- dom. If that freedom be once again lost, as it was after the last war, the unforgiv- able blame will be ours, not theirs. So it is we the living who are here to be dedi- cated and consecrated. We dedicate ourselves, first, to live together in peace the way they fougr~t and are buried in this war. Here lie men who loved America because their ancestors generations ago helped in her founding, and other men who loved her with equal passion because they themselves or their own fathers escaped from oppression to her blessed shores. Here lie officers and men, negroes and whites, rich ~neia and poor-together. Here no man prefers another because of his faith or despises him because of his color. Here there are no quotas of how many from each group are admitted or allowed. Among these men there is no discrimination. No prejudices. No hatred. Theirs is the high- est and purest de/nocracy. Any man among us the living who fails to understand that will thereby betray those who lie here dead. Whoever of us lifts uP. his hand in hate against a brother, or thinks himself superior to those who happen to be in the minor- ity, makes of this ceremony and of the bloody sacrifice it commemorates, an empty, hollow mockery. To this, then, as our solemn, sacred duty, do we the living now dedicate ourselves: to the rights of Protestants, Catholics and Jews, not foolishly suppose, as did the last gen- eration of America's fghting men, that victory on the battlefield rW~ automatP- cally guarantee the triumph of democ- racy at home. This war, with all its fright- ful heartache and suffering, is but the beginning our our generation's struggle for democracy. When the last battle has been won, there will be those at home, as there were the last time, who will want us to turn our backs in selfish isolation on the rest of organized humanity, and thus to sabotage the very peace for which we fight. Wepromise you who lie here: we will not do that! We will join hands with Britain, China, Russia in peace, even as we have in war, to build the kind of world for which you died. When the last shot has been fired, there will still be those whose eyes are turned backward, not forward, who will be satis- fied with those wide extremes of poverty and wealth in which the seeds of another war can breed. We promise you, our departed comrades: this too we will not permit. This war has been fought by the common man; its fruits of peace must be. enjoyed by the common man! We prom- ise, by all that is sacred and holy, that your sons, the sons of moners and mill- ers, the sons of farmers and workers, the right to a living that is decent and secure. When the final cross has been placed in the last cemetery, once again there will be those to whom profit is more important than peace, who will insist. with the voice Of sweet reasonableness and appeasement tlaat it is better to trade with the enemies of mankind, than by crushing them, to lose their profit. To you who sleep ~here silently, we give'our promise: we will not listen! We willnot forget that some of you were burnt with oil that came from American wells, that many of you were killed with shells fash- ioned from American steel. We promise that when once again men profit at your expense, we shall remember how you looked when we placed you reverently, lovingly, in the ground. Thus do we memorialize those who, having ceased living with us, now live within us. Thus do we consecrate our- selves the living to carry on the struggle they began. Too much blood has gone into this" soil for us to let it lie barren. Too much pain and heartache have fertilized the earth on which we stand We here solemnly swear: this shall not be in vain! Out of this, and from the suf- fering and sorrow of those who mourn this, will come-we promise-the birth of a new freedom for the sons Of men everywhere. Amen."

He was the first Jewish Chaplain ever to serve with the Marine Corps. #
