Memorandum for the President

July 15, 1941 Washington, D.C.

Attached is the record of my hearings before the Senate Military Committee on the question of the retention of the selectees and reserve components in the military service. I have marked certain portions which relate to the general proposition, to Hawaii and Alaska, and especially to Iceland.

In view of the discussion of yesterday, and others which may follow, you may be interested in reading those particular portions of my testimony.

G. C. Marshall
