Dear Col. Turner:
The members of the Territorial Emergency Service Committees wish to congratulate you on receiving the Legion of Merit award. We are happy that the War Department has at long last recognized your contribution to the building of the now famous 100th Infantry Battalion which has received national acclaim as a fighting unit.
We realize that the excellent leadership given by you and others in your command had much to do with the success of the 100th.
Very sincerely yours,
Terr. Emergency Service Committees
