:rolleyes: "THE BRASS HATS OF 1939" Special Class of the Command and Staff School - Fort Leavenworth, Texas. (6-1/8" X 9-1/4") 92 pages [1429-C&GSS-6-15-39-125]. BG Leslie J. McNair said: "To the Officers of the Special Class of 1939: The special course once more has proved an altogether happy arrangement. It has brought together you of the National Guard and Organized Reserve and us of the Regular Army as fellow officers in the broad sense and as fellow officers in the military sense. I hope that you have enjoyed the association and have profited by it as much as we. The importance of such occasions - all to few and too limited - can not be overestimated. I only wish that more could attend the course and stay longer." :rolleyes: Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California. If you want easier to read type in clearer scans, please feel free to contact me at: ([email protected]) and get free daily scans. :rolleyes: QUESTION? Is there anyone out there who is a serious collector of books like this? Someone who has the years preceeding 1939 and afterward who really needs it to complete their set of "The Brass Hat" out there? I might be willing to part with it, but I shant sell it as I am not a dealer/seller, of course! Nor accept postage or any token payment either as I do not need or want the money. Who out there is willing to work with me? I need pictures or scans that can be used here to show insignia, medals, uniforms, etc., I can TRADE my CDs of same for your's and possibly contribute my books to you in return for your part. I buy from eBay sellers and scan the booklets, books, catalogues, etc., afterward I do not need the actual ephemera, know what I mean? Obviously there is no guatrantee a museum nor library will keep and preserve these printed matter, a serious collector will and they'll make provision for the disposition of their possessions after they depart this life. They won't be forced to sell it to pay their debts, else a collection is broken up and scattered or sold off by heirs, etc.? I am on borrowed time and accept it as part of life, but I'd like to see everything stay intact and in the hands of a serious collector who'll pass it along for the future generations! I hope someone out there is in a position to maintain a library and collection, surely there must be someone?
