"The most President Truman wrote recently to Colonel J. Monroe Johnson, director of the Office of Defense Transportation, on the subjcat of forth- coming troop movements in the United States. "The transportation facilities of the nation are now called upon for the most gigantic task in all the history of transportation/' observed the nation's Chief Executive. "The American armies must be moved from Europe to mcct and wipe out the tyranny of the East. In order to do this job most of our soldiers will-be transported the full length of the North American continent. "It reauired every transportation Ingenuity to assemble our : ' ........ "es in'Europe over a period of four years. This tsme the job .......... : .....   #ngat must be done in those ten months? The jo comrontmg America's railways is summarized in this Office of Defense Transportation statement: " .... i: ' " "Before next March, more than__ 3 million American soldiers will be !i ,.-,.,W landed at ports along our Atlantic coast from IVine to Florida. By at 500,000 a month. "Most Of these men will be carried by rail 3,000 miles to the Pacific Coast. But, that's only part of the story. "Before the men ship out to the Pacific battle areas, they will have been transported from Atlantic ports to staging areas, then grouped geo- graphically and moved to Army camps nearest their home. After a furlough home, each man will report to an induction centertln moved to a retraining camp. "The next trip will bc to a staging area somewhere on the West coast, His seventh trip will be made from staging area to shipsidc. "Our railroads must accommodate the equivalent of 20 million people each raking one trip. All of this is to be accomplished in a period of about ten months. While this gigantic move is taking place, we must provide speedy and comfortable transportation for manycasual- ties--some 40,000 per month--who will continue t? move back to this country as the war vrogresscs. "We must transport newly-inducted soldicrspcrhaps a million in the next 12 months; and also supply transportation for the army remaining in continental United States, as well as for the Navy, Coast Guard and 241arines." Today the armed forces have first call on virtually aU of the nation's railway passenger equipmentwmore than 30,000 cars of various types. And, this is considerably less equipment than was available in 1918, when the military demand for transportation of troops was far smaller than now. Great Northern's sharing with other Western lines the responsibility for performing "the most gigantic task" already has resulted in less space on Great Northerntrains for civilian travel. Military requirements in the months ahead will dictate whether further curtailments are necessary. The railway's watchword today is "Fighters First." We know you wouldn't want it any other way.
