Omar N. Bradley

 

Omar Nelson Bradley, 1893-1981.  General of the Army; first permanent chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  Outstanding content Typed Letter Signed, Omar N. Bradley, one page, 7” x 8½”, on personal stationery imprinted with Bradley’s five-star flag, June 15, 1970.

Bradley expresses admiration for President Harry S. Truman, his fellow Missourian.  In part:  “What can I say about President Truman?  /  That I cherish his friendship?  Much more than that.  /  That I admire and respect him?  Much more than that.  /  I think he is one of the finest men I have ever known, and that when the verdict of history is known, he will be considered as one of our truly great presidents.  /  My thoughts when I last saw him were, as always, that I was standing in the presence of courage, determination, forthrightness, and complete honesty.  I am proud that he has chosen to honor me with his affection and esteem and privileged to have served with such an outstanding American.”

Bradley has signed this letter in blue ball point pen.  The letter has one normal mailing fold, well away from the signature, and is in fine condition.

Bradley’s autograph material is common, but outstanding content letters like this one are not.
