Dwight D. Eisenhower
 
General Draza Mihailovich
 
The following New Year’s greeting
 was sent by General Dwight Eisenhower,
who was to become the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, to General Draza Mihailovich,
on January 1, 1943:
 
“The American forces in Europe and Africa send greetings to their comrades in arms,
 the resourceful and gallant Yugoslav military units under your splendid leadership.
 These brave men who banded together on their native soil to drive the invader from their country are serving with full devotion the cause of the League of Nations.
May the New Year bring them full success.”
 
General Dwight D. Eisenhower

  1. What a wonderful New Year's Greeting. That was three years before my birth. Sadly I hope we never have to fight an invader. And sadly some think we may one day be fighting our own government. There are groups in our country who think that way. That big government is taking over our rights.
