Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson today praised the morale activities of the National Jewish Welfare Board among Jews in the American armed services and said that these activities afford "invaluable assistance" to America’s defense program.

"The Department of Defense is well aware of the great contribution made by the National Jewish Welfare Board on behalf of those members of the Jewish faith in our Armed Forces," Secretary Wilson stated in a letter to the JWB. "Your Armed Services Division and its committees throughout the country have been a vital link between our servicemen and the communities, affording invaluable assistance to the national defense program. We know that we can count on your continued cooperation."
