HEADQUARTERS IX AIR DEFENSE COMMAND
APO 638, U.S. Army 17 May, 1944 SUBJECT: Commendation TO: Lt. Col. J.B. Terrill, Jr., Commanding 225th AAA S/L BN., U.S. Army 1. I desire to commend you and all officers and men of the 225th AAA SL BN for the general excellence of your unit, as demonstrated during my inspection on 11 May, 1944 and the administration inspection conducted by an inspector from this Headquarters 18-21 April, 1944. It is well known that such results can be produced only by intelligent leadership, close attention to duty and hard work on the part of all concerned and a singleness of purpose which will never tolerate half-measures. 2. It is evident that you have realized the magnitude of the tasks ahead, and you may all take justifiable pride in having prepared yourselves well for these tasks, and in being members of an outstanding organization. I wish you all continued success. /s/ William L. Richardson /t/ WILLIAM L. RICHARDSON Brig. Gen. USA Commanding
