Typed Letter signed: "E. C. Meyer," 1 page, 7x8½. No place, 1983 April 11. On his 4-star general's letterhead to Joseph Kover, Flushing, New York. In full: "Thanks for your recent letter requesting my feelings on how scouting helps to build better citizens. I became involved in scouting at a very early age, as many boys do. I consider myself to be a better person, both spiritually and emotionally as a result as a result of the experience I lived in scouting. Scouting gave me an opportunity to expand my knowledge through living and learning the basics of manhood and life. These experiences have remained with me and have helped to guide me through life. I am still proud to be an eagle scout, and the discipline I learned in achieving that rank has stood me in good stead for nearly 40 years. Sincerely". Edward C. Meyer (b. 1928), a company commander in Korea, led the 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry in Vietnam (1965-1966). Rising through increasingly important staff positions, he took command of the US 3rd Division in Europe (1974-1975). He was Chief of Staff of the US Army (1979-1983). Normal mailing folds. Very fine condition.
