June 22, 1942
Dear Doctor Stoughton:
Salutations to yourself and to Wagner College from our Army Air Forces. It is a long time since I left Wagner officially but I still feel that it is a part of “home”.
One of your letters about Wagner’s current financial campaign was forwarded to me from home. Were you aware of the fact that I am a number of one of our armed forces you might have foreseen what my answer would be.
I realize that it is now imperative that Wagner continue its work in education, both scholastic and religious. Insofar as I would like to be able to do my share of keeping my alma mater going I feel badly that I can’t do so. I regret that I must inform you that at the present time Wagner can not expect any financial aid from me.
At least I can wish you the best of luck in your present endeavor. I note that many Wagnerites besides

myself are in the army or navy. After we have secured our position Wagner will find that her sons, and possibly now even her daughters, have had a great part in guaranteeing that civilization as we understand it and teach it shall not be destroyed.
With my kindest regards to those of Wagner who might know me I remain,
Very truly yours,
(Corp.) Irving Green
