MEMORANDUM FOR:

THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY.

Because the President's schedule has become so crowded with most urgent war problems, it is becoming more and more difficult to make time available for the personal presentation of Medals of Honor by the President. The War Department has decided that they will not request him to deliver any more until further notice. It would be helpful if the Navy Department could arrange to have presentations made by the Secretary or his Representative.

WILSON BROWN,
Vice Admiral, U.S.N.,
Naval Aide to the President.

Copy to:
            Commandant of the Marine Corps.
            The Chief of Naval Personnel.
            Senior Member, Navy Dept. Board of Decorations and Medals.
