"He stands in the unbroken line of Patriots who have dared to die that freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives. And through it, he lives in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
- Harry S. Truman, President of the United States of America
"He lived to bear his country's arms. He died to save its honor. He was a soldier...and he knew a soldier's duty. His sacrifice will help to keep aglow the flaming torch that lights our lives...that millions yet unborn may know the priceless joy of liberty. And we who pay him homage, and revere his memory, in solemn pride rededicate ourselves to a complete fulfillment of the task for which he so gallantly has placed his life upon the altar of man's freedom."
- H. H. Arnold, General US Army, Commanding General Army Air Forces
