GEIGER FIELD
WASHINGTON

Feb. 11, 1942
Dear Pres. Stoughton,
Many thanks for the fine recommendation you sent me, I certainly appreciate it. I have my mind set on getting a commission and am going to do everything I can to fulfill that wish. There are many fine opportunities at the present time in the Air Corps and I think I can be of more value to the Army in a different capacity than the one in which I am serving at present.
I often think of the many good times I had in school and often wish I could live my College days over again. However I find now with the benefit of a college degree, I am able to contribute more to the defense of my country than I otherwise would be able to do.
Once again thanks for your quick response to my request for a recommendation; I assure you it will be used to the advantage of both my country and myself. Best of luck to you, to Wagner, and the Student Body, and with hope that I may be able to visit my Alma Mater soon again under more peaceful conditions, I remain,
Most sincerely,
Marshall Esterly
