Mr. James M. Jordan
Corpus Christi, Texas
Dear Mr. Jordan:
Reference is made to our previous correspondence concerning the
memorialization program at Bryan Air Force Base. You will find inclosed [sic-
copies of General Order Number 12, dated 30 June 1954, which renames several
streets on this United State Air Force Installation. Your particular attention
is invited to paragraph 6 which redesignates what was formerly Third Street to
Hughes Street in honor of your brother, Lieutenant Lloyd. H. Hughes.
It is only through acts of heroism as displayed by Lloyd that our democracy
continues to exist. I realize your lose can never be adjusted; however, perhaps
it will be of some consolation to you to know that Lloyd is being remembered in
A suitable marker identifying Lloyd is being prepared, and will be placed in
a conspicuous location adjacent to the street. At a later date I will forward
you pictures of the memorial and a copy of a map of the base.
I would appreciate your advising me of the present mailing address of Mrs.
Lloyd H. Hughes, your brother's widow.
ARVID E. OLSON
