Memorandum to the Chief of the Aviation Division (Morgan) by Bear Admiral J. L. McCrea of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations
A naval lighter-than-air base at Igarape Assu, Brazil, is not now operating and is in Army custody. Since the Army wishes to withdraw from the facility, the Navy proposes to offer it to Brazil.
The views of the Department of State on the proposed disposition of the lighter-than-air base at Igarape Assu, Brazil, are requested.36
- In reply to this memorandum, the Secretary of State informed the Secretary of the Navy, in a note of August 31, that the Department of State perceived no objection to the proposed action (811.34532/8–1745).↩
