THE WHITE HOUSE
August 27, 1942
MEMORANDUM TO GENERAL MARSHALL
FOR THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF
I am enclosing a copy of a letter which I have received from Mr. Donald Nelson relative to aircraft production for the balance of 1942 and for 1943.
A supplement is attached showing a breakdown by types of planes. You will note that the probable production of all types for the balance of this year and next is greatly below the original Victory Program and substantially below the War Production Board’s 8-K objective.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
