Transcription

"Mrs. Jakubowski, I would like to ask you what do you think about the Legion, why our organization is so important to us and everybody in Polonia."
"Because I think that we women of Polish descent have a deep feeling for the country from which our parents descended. And we have been doing everything in our power to help those who have suffered through the - through the World War II. We have endured, we have prospered, because the ladies have all pitched in. There's a spirit of cooperation in everything that we do. Personal grievances are forgotten, everyone just pitches in and helps. And I think the same thing is true with our workings with other organizations. And it's just a spirit of cooperation and a deep love for the country from which we have come."
