LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL

pt. 1

U.S. SENATE,
SPECIAL PREPAREDNESS SUBCOMMITTEE,
COMMITTEE ON ARMED SERVICES,

October 19, 1962.
Hon. RICHARD B. RUSSELL,
Chairman, Committee on Armed Services,
U.S. Senate.

MY DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: I am pleased to transmit herewith the report of the inquiry and investigation conducted by the Special Preparedness Subcommittee appointed pursuant to the resolution of the Committee on Armed Services adopted September 20, 1961.

The resolution referred to authorized and directed the special subcommittee "to study and appraise the use of military personnel and facilities to arouse the public to the menace of the cold war and to inform and educate armed services personnel on the nature and menace of the cold war.” I believe that you will find that the attached report is fully responsive to the subcommittee's assignment.

The report, and the findings, conclusions, and recommendations contained in it, are the product of extensive open hearings, covering 36 days, during which 67 witnesses were heard. The findings, conclusions, and recommendations are based upon and supported by substantial and credible evidence appearing in the record.

The subcommittee report is subscribed to and endorsed by myself, as chairman, and by Senators Stuart Symington, Henry M. Jackson, Leverett Saltonstall, and Margaret Chase Smith.

Senator E. L. Bartlett has filed his individual views in which he expresses his "solid agreement” with most of the report but dissents in the one particular discussed by him. His individual views are also transmitted herewith.

Senator Strom Thurmond has declined to sign the majority report and has filed individual views covering the entire subject matter which are likewise transmitted herewith.

There is one vacancy on the subcommittee as a result of the death of our esteemed colleague, Senator Francis Case, who passed away after the completion of the hearings but prior to the preparation of the report.

Since the subcommittee has now completed its assigned task, it is my understanding that, with the filing of this report, the subcommittee is discharged. Respectfully,

JOHN STENNIS, Chairman, Special Preparedness Subcommittee.
