TO MY WIFE AND CHILDREN
whose courage in the presence of the greatest dangers, and whose devotion to me and to the cause for which we were fighting, was my inspiration during those dreadful days on Corregidor, and on our long journey since then.
“THE people of the United States will never forget what the people of the Philippine Islands are doing these days, and will do in the days to come. As president, I wish to express my feeling of sincere admiration for the fight they are now making. I give the people of the Philippines my solemn pledge that their freedom will be redeemed and their independence established and protected. The entire resources in men and materials of the United States stand behind that pledge.”
—From PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT’S message to the Filipino people on December 28, 1941
