Protestant Version New Testament 1941

In a little New Testament bible I obtained dated March 6, 1941 printed by the UNITED STATES GOVERNAMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON presented by The Army of the United States has a message in the front of the bible, it reads:

The White House
Washington
To the Members of the Army:
As Commander-in-Chief I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States. Throughout the centuries men of many faiths and diverse oringins have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel and inspiration. It is a fountain of strength and now, as always, an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul.
Very sincerely yours,
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Personal Note:
My how far have we come in America in 68 years. No bible in schools, no pray in schools, and yet many wonder why things are going as they are. The BIBLE was the voice of the American people for many years from George Washington, John Adams to Franklin Roosevelt. I just wonder if our United States Government would do such an act today? Those who are blind always follows the sound of a voice.
America is blind, and without a voice, where will we go? If the blind lead the blind, they both fall in a ditch. The Word of God is our Compass and without a compass you will not have the right direction. Pick it up and cherish it, for it will lead you where you need to go.
