Honoring the United States Navy

Friday, Oct. 27, 1944

Today is Navy Day. And even though Denver is as inland as can be, there are proud sailors and naval officers celebrating. General George C. Marshall issued a statement that “I cannot imagine a more appropriate moment than this evening for the celebration of Navy Day. Even the destruction of what remains of the Japanese fleet may come somewhat as an anticlimax and I say this with due regard for the inevitable hazards of war.” On a more ominous note, the Nazis crushed an uprising in central Slovakia. The war in Europe is not over, not even close.

Light the Sabbath candles.
