On stationery imprinted with his Four-Star General flag to Ben Hill Brown, Spartanburg, South Carolina. In full: "Conrad Cleveland just phoned to tell me of your mother's serious condition. She is a dear friend, and I should like her to know that she is in my prayers - as are you and Ranny. With warm personal regards and kindest thoughts". Written two years before Westmoreland, who had been born in Spartanburg County in 1914, retired from military service. Mr. Brown's mother died in March 1970. William Childs Westmoreland (1914-2005), a veteran of WWII, was Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (1960-1963) and Commander of the U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, and United States Army, Vietnam, at the peak of the Vietnam War (1964-1968). Westmoreland, who then served as Army Chief of Staff (1968-1972), supervised the Army's disengagement from Vietnam and the transition from the draft to an all-volunteer army. Slightly creased with mid-horizontal fold, not at signature. Light type transference at blank areas. Fine condition.
