Text

Mr. Truman

     As you have been directly responsible for the loss of our son's life in Korea, you might just as well keep this emblem on display in your trophy room, as a memory of one of your historic deeds.

     Our major regret at this time is that your daughter was not there to receive the same treatment as our son received in Korea.

Signed

William Banning
