Image: US workers walking on a yellow path with a letter written by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Behind the men is a factory in operation. 1919 is written along the path of the workers behind the letter and 1941 is written on the path in front of the workers walking in front of the letter
Text: Beat the promise
Franklin D. Roosevelt's letter reads: Dear sir, The work carried on during the war by the Navy Department in developing anti-submarine devices and equipping vessels for anti-submarine operations had an important effect in restricting enemy submarine operations. This result was mad possible by the splendid assistance and co-operation of the many distinguished scientists, engineers, and business men who were in one way or another associated with the Special Board on Anti-Submarine Devices, which had been appointed by the Department to supervise work of this nature. The Navy Department wishes to express its appreciation of the valuable assistance rendered by you in this connection. Very truly yours, Franklin D. Roosevelt Acting Secretary of the Navy.
