Mr. James M. Jordan 337 Waverly Drive Corpus Christi, Texas

Dear Mr. Jordan:

On March 1, 1969, Texas A&M University will honor its six Medal of Honor winners at Spring Military Day festivities on the campus. As the half-brother of Lieutenant Lloyd H. Hughes, a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, you are most cordially invited to attend these activities. My assistant, Mr. Dick Bernard, has assured me that in his phone call to you on February 14, you told him that you and at least two of your three brothers will try to attend the ceremony. We certainly hope that your plans work out.

The festivities will begin with a luncheon to be served on the campus for member of the honored families. The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets will pass in review at 2:00 p.m. on the Main Drill Field, across from the Memorial Student Center. During this Corps review, members of the families of the recipients of the Award will be escorted to the residence hall which bears the honoree’s name and will be given a conducted tour of this hall. These events will be followed by a coffee in one of the residence halls. You should be able to depart the campus, if you so desire, not later than 4:00 p.m.

We suggest that you plan to meet with your escort at 11:30 a.m. at the main desk of the Memorial Student Center.

It goes without saying that we are most desirous of your presence for these activities at which we will recognize families of Texas A&M University’s sons who earned the nation’s highest Medal for valor. Please respond to this request to me at your earliest possible date.

Sincerely yours,

(signed) Earl Rudder President
