WAR DEPARTMENT OFFICE OF THE CHIEF OF STAFF WASHINGTON May 25, 1942. Mr. Germain Seligmann, 5 East 57th Street, New York, New York. Dear Mr. Seligmann: Just prior to his departure on a trip to the West Coast, General Marshall directed me to write you and advise you of the progress being made concerning the granting of a commission. It appears that the legal obstacles of commissioning you have been overcome. However, War Department G-2 advises that there is no vacancy at this time in the Military Intelligence Service in which your services could be utilized. The Office of the Coordinator of Information has been contacted and it is understood that they will get in touch with you directly concerning an interview with the idea of utilizing your services in that agency. Sincerely yours, W. T. SEXTON, Lt. Col., General Staff, Assistant Secretary, General Staff.
