President Discusses Freedom and Democracy in Latvia
Delivering an address during the 60th anniversary week of WWII, President George W. Bush tells the story of Latvian sailors on eight freighters who disobeyed orders from a puppet government and remained at sea to help the U.S. Merchant Marines during the war at The Small Guild Hall in Riga, Latvia, Saturday, May 7, 2005. “By the end of the war, six of the Latvian ships had been sunk, and more than half the sailors had been lost,” said President Bush. “Nearly all of the survivors settled in America, and became citizens we were proud to call our own.” White House photo by Krisanne Johnson
