Mothers of World War It Soldiers Urge Creation of Inter-faith Shrine

Mothers of World War II, holding their national convention here, unanimously voted their support of Senate Joint Resolution 152, providing for the erection of an inter-faith shrine in the Nation’s capital in memory of the contributions of members of all religious faiths to American military and naval history.

According to the resolution, the proposed memorial, “would serve as a perpetual reminder of the fact that Americans of all racial and national origins and religious faiths have contributed their life and blood to the safeguarding of our nation.” Military and naval records concerning the patriotic sacrifices of various racial and religious groups would be deposited in the memorial building.
