The General has forwarded a paper "on the subject of Telling 'The Air Force Story' in Peacetime" to the Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force.
TLS: "George" as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1p, 5¾x7¾. Washington, D.C., 1977 May 9. On his official letterhead to Mr. Charles J. Russhon, New York, New York. Begins: "Dear Charlie". In full: "You sent me a paper on the subject of Telling 'The Air Force Story' in Peacetime with the thought that maybe the Chief of Staff of the Air Force might send it to all Air Force commanders. I in turn sent it to Dave Jones with a note suggesting he do so and he in turn has suggested that I tell you that his people are working on the proposal and will contact you directly to discuss it in detail. From the above I conclude that they like the idea and second, they will be in touch with you if they have not been already. Sorry to have missed you last week. All the best. Sincerely". Brown was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from July 1, 1974 to June 20, 1978. During WWII, GEORGE SCRATCHLEY BROWN (1918-1978) was a bomber pilot in the 93rd Bombardment Group flying B-24s attached to the Eighth Air Force. In August 1968, he was promoted to General and took command of the Seventh Air Force based in Saigon, South Vietnam and was responsible for the entire southwest Asia region. In July 1973, Brown was named by President Nixon as Chief of Staff of the Air Force. He was confirmed by the U.S. Senate despite controversy over the issue of falsified reports from his office, the Air Force Systems Command, that hid secret bombing missions in Cambodia in 1969-1970. DAVID C. JONES was Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force from July 1, 1974-June 20, 1978. Slightly creased with fold, not at signature. Fine condition.
