Yesterday, December seventh, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

-President Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is no use saying, 'We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.

-Winston Churchill

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

-Winston Churchill

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
-Winston Churchill


Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

-John F. Kennedy

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: Freedom, Justice, Honor, Duty, Mercy, Hope.

-Winston Churchill

"Real life super heroes exist; they walk among us every day, ready to defend our great nation and it's citizens in a moment's notice they are husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons capable of staring death in the face, and still come home to rock their newborn infant to sleep in the same day"

"This kind of warrior cannot be manufactured or purchased. They are born into this life, blessed with higher sense of purpose, and the understanding of exactly what their fate may hold. We chose to share this life with them, because we would rather love an extraordinary man for a brief moment, than spend a lifetime with a man far more ordinary"

"You can never be prepared for certain life events in life, they change you and their consequences turn your world upside down. Meeting your husband's casket as he makes his final journey home. The prospect of raising your children alone. Living the rest of your days without the one person that loved you unconditionally and never let you down. In truth, these men never let anyone down, which is why they are no longer here today."

"These amazing warriors chose to spend their brief but amazing lives with us. We raise their children. We honor and remember them, we live in the present and we look to the future. They knew we would have the strength to carry on in the face of tragedy, and to become stronger, more amazing versions of ourselves. They knew we would never be defined by their passing, but inspired by their memory to live more fully and to make each we are given count."

"We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."

Winston Churchill


"I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly."

Winston Churchill


"Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill is one of the few best leaders in the world so he deserves a ton of respect for his courage in the face of overwhelming odds, during World War II he was the best motivation the British had left since HMS Hood was sunk trying to destroy the Bismarck, so basically Winston Churchill is one of the few respected leaders and politicians in the Second World War.
