In full: "Your nice note of 17 August received. I will be delighted to be with you at twelve o'clock on Monday, 13 September, at the luncheon for Bob Speck. With kind regards, I am, Sincerely". James L. Holloway, Jr. (1898-1984) served on a destroyer patrolling for U Boats in World War I. In World War II, he helped plan the invasion of North Africa (Operation Torch, 1943) and later commanded the battleship USS Iowa in combat in the Pacific. After the war he was placed in charge of a commission to review the Navy's Reserve Officer Training Corps; his ideas for an expanded NROTC with easier access to permanent naval rank for graduates became known as The Holloway Plan. He was Superintendent of the Naval Academy (1947-1950). As Commander of US naval forces in the Mediterranean (1957-1959), he was in charge of the US intervention in Lebanon in 1958. His son, James L. Holoway III, was to become Chief of Naval Operations. This is the only time a father and son have held 4-star admiral rank at the same time. Normal mailing fold. Slight creases. Staple holes in top left corner. Corners slightly worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
