God bless America!

We made it back!

Times Square, believe me,

is wall-to-wall people,

human beings bent on having

the greatest party ever

and being in on a bit of this history.

What a night this is!

What a thrill!

Our boys are coming home,

and a lot of them are here right now,

right in the middle of this chaos.

I've talked to them.

They're from Arkansas, ;

Colorado, ; Seattle, Washington, ;

Los Angeles, ;

Aberdeen, Washington.

Looking around Times Square

at this very minute,

people are deliriously happy.

They're holding up newspapers

with huge 8-to-10 inch headlines...

"V-J Day," it says,

"War's End," "It's Over."

Now they're hugging

and kissing each other,

shouting words

of cheer and encouragement.

And still, paper by the torn keeps

flowing out of the windows

high, high above us.

...and the USO shows, too.

Our hats are off to all of those

people in show business

who traveled the world

entertaining our men and women

overseas and here at home.

Times Square is happy,

New York is happy,

the United States is happy,

and the world is at peace.

Tommy, I know all America

wants to thank you

and your wondertul organization

tor all the great war bond drives

you've put on,

and tor giving ot your time and talent

There's no way...


That seat's taken,

I know it's taken, but I'm gonna
