HEADQUARTERS ARMY AIR FORCES GULF COAST TRAINING CENTER Office of the Commanding General Randolph Field, Texas June 26, 1943

Mr. and Mrs. Maurice C. Miller, R. R. #2, Plainwell, Mich.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Miller:

In a memorandum which had come to my desk this morning, I note that your boy has been classified for Pilot training and that he will be appointed an Aviation Cadet in the Army Air Forces.

In order to win this war, it is vital to have the best qualified young men at the controls of our military aircraft. Upon their precision, daring and coolness will depend in large measure the success of our entire war effort.

The duties of an Army Pilot call for a high degree of mental and physical alertness, sound judgment, and an inherent aptitude for flying. Men who will make good material for training as Pilots are rare. The Classification Board believes your boy is one of them and that he will in all probability win his wings as a military pilot.

You must realize, however, that all of our study of the problem has produced no infallible method of determining in advance whether a young man has that inherent something which will make him a natural and safe pilot. As a result, some pilot candidates are later transferred to other types of military training.

Comprehensive tests indicate that your son stands a very good chance of successfully completing the rigid training for an army pilot and you have every reason to be proud of him. I congratulate you and him.

Sincerely yours, G.C BRANT Major General, U.S. Army Commanding
