Oh How Times Have Changed

I watched a documentary this morning while on the treadmill about FDR before the U.S. entered WW II. One portion of the film covered when FDR and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill met aboard the ship Prince of Wales after a couple of years of letter writing. But this struck me as odd by today's standard: There they were in a grand ceremony. And they were surrounded by navy men each holding a hymn book and singing "Onward Christian Soldiers".
