Letter # 1

 February 19, 1943

War Department
Headquarters, Services of Supply
Office of the Chief Signal Officer
Washington, D.C.

Mrs. Sadie Berman

New York, N.Y.
Dear Mrs. Berman
It is with real pleasure that I extend my felicitations to you on the occasion of your son's graduation from the Officer's Candidate School at Fort Monmouth.
In the seventy-three years of distinguished military history the Signal Corps has welcomed a great many brave and excellent officers to it's services. As a successor to them now, your son has the opportunity to display the characteristics of honor, manliness, and leadership that you have labored in these past years to inculcate in him.
I hope that it will be possible for you to attend the graduation exercise at Fort Monmouth so that Lieutenant Avy Berman will know that his family is present at his hour of achievement, and that you, as well as the Signal Corps of the Army of the United States, are wishing him success and God-speed in his new assignment.

Donald Olmstead
Major General
Chief Signal Officer of the Army
