“Every day millions of flying fingers must type instructions, specifications, orders, and reorders before a bolt can go into a tank, a rivet can go into a battleship, or a rib can go into a plane.
Even on the field of battle, the typewriter must help correlate the fast moving action…each unit of our Navy, down to the little mosquito boats, has typewriters on board.”
