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.
