Capt. H.E. Hall, Personnel Office.
Turner Field, Albany, Georgia.
I have placed my application here for an appointment to Officer’s Candidate School, but before the Board will consider me I have to have a rating scale filled out by someone who has come in contact with me.
Since Maxwell Field did not send me to pilot school when I am trying very hard for this appointment to O. C. S. Sir, will you fill out this rating scale for me and also write a short letter of recommendation so I will be able to meet the board here.
I thank you very much for your consideration of this letter and hope to hear from you on the matter.
John M. Coffman, Pvt. U.S. Air Force
