Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has released a documentary honoring the 75th anniversary of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Arsenal of Democracy speech, which was broadcast on December 29, 1940. Roosevelt’s speech referred to the American arsenal of weapons for World War II as the arsenal of democracy and promised to help arm the UK against Nazi German.
FCA’s documentary, called Automakers and the Arsenal of Democracy, is a short film describing Chrysler’s involvement in World War II. The Chrysler Corporation was one of the biggest automakers involved in the war effort, and the six-minute film narrated by Brandt Rosenbusch takes a deeper look than ever before at Chrysler’s production of tanks, aircraft parts, guns, bombs, and more.
This look at Chrysler’s history is just one example of FCA’s dedication to helping the US military and supporting veterans. FCA US has also set up an annual donation to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, given support to the USO, donated Jeep vehicles to the service, and given money to help with the construction of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
