Apologies for my lapse in communication, however matters at the front necessitated a brief absence from my communiques back to Washington. However, I have returned and am fully up to date. ((It's my graduation weekend, so I was rather caught up in everything))
I approve the updated version of Buckler whereby our fleets would be largely remain ported in our Pacific bases. However, this is with the stipulation that they should strike against Japanese fleets in the event of an invasion or a juicy opportunity.
I also approve the current construction run and research, as well as the continued temporary assignment of the 1st Marine Corps to the Atlantic Theater. They are currently able to put them to far greater use than we are.
I must now return to the War Department Mr. President, but I stand ready to serve at your pleasure.
General Omar N. Bradley
