1952 - President Harry S. Truman warned Americans of the Cold War dangers.

During his annual State of the Union address, President Truman warned Americans of the dangers of the Cold War and called on America to combat the vicious Communist threat that was rising. Truman used much of his address to discuss foreign policy, and although his popularity had plummeted after the public's reaction to how he handled the Korean War, he received a standing ovation with his final statement:

"Let us prove, again, that we are not merely sunshine patriots and summer soldiers. Let us go forward, trusting in the God of peace, to win the goals we seek. (The History Channel)
