July 29, 1944
Your letter of the 16th was on my desk when I returned from the islands of Maui and Hawaii where I spend a week talking to parents and relatives of the 100th boys.
Your case is covered by War Dept. Circular #237, 12 June, 1944, which has a paragraph reading as follows: “Combat wounded veterans of the 100th Inf. B. who are no longer qualified for general service will be transferred in grade to the Territory of Hawaii for limited assignment in station complements and overhead installation.” I suggest that you see the Hospital Sgt. Major and get in a letter requesting this transfer.
Hawaii is still a good place to live in and you are right in looking forward to seeing it once more.
