Great research from PIXEL PATRIOT...

A speech from a board member at the National Archives and Records Administration.
Check out page 3:
 "I came over on what later became a troop ship in the Vietnam War, and my first English words I learned from American soldiers. One I will not share with you, and the other one was forwhichitstands, and I hope you know what that means. It's "and to the republic for which it stands," and I thought
it was one word. And, you know, that was my first English word. Little did I know that more than 50 years later, I would be on the board of the Archives Foundation and that I would spend some time in the walls and halls of this great building that reminds us what incredible treasures of democracy we have as both natural and naturalized citizens."
