Address Before Young Israel of Pelham Parkway at the Concourse Plaza Hotel, New York City

May 20, 1964


New York, NY

The men and women who have served in it have brought to peoples around the world, in remote mountain villages and in bustling industrial cities, the true picture of the American of the sixties. It has been their spirit, their idealism, their skill and vitality which have done so much to erase the image of the “ugly American.”
