Bow Your Heads

is Invasion. Now in the hearts, brains and muscles of our American Youth
the future of our country,

Bow your heads. Pray. with millions of mothers the country over, as their hearts reach out
over the seas, each one seeking out her boy, to protect him with the shield of her love.

I Believe that in this world there is definite strength in decency and honor.

Believe that in our devotion there is moral force.

Believe that our WILL to victory will aid that victory.

Seek and ye shall find.

Let us seek added strength and fortitude for our nation in our sacrifice and devotion.Let .

us focus every thought, every action, every prayer on the boys fighting for us.
And, while each one bends to his task with ever-growing fervor and energy, let us adopt a

common symbol as our faith in Victory.

Let that Symbol be War Bonds. Let us pour our money in a gigantic FLOOD of goodwill towardour

sons and brothers, as a spiritual shield for them.

This is the Invasion. The lives of our boys are at stake. Let them see that the Soul of Amer-

ica is with them.

Let it not be too late not next month, next week, or tomorrow, but today NOW.

Buy Your Invasion Bonds Today
