Brigadier General Tasker H. Bliss to George C. Marshall

August 22, 1912 Governors Island, New York


With reference to the Connecticut Maneuver Campaign of 1912, just ended, it is recognized that a very great measure of the success of the maneuvers is due to the skillful manner in which you planned the various situations of the campaign.

I wish to thank you personally and officially for your efficient services and to express the belief that such ability as you have shown in this task will surely result in high honor to yourself and to the military profession.

Very respectfully.
