Diary of Fidel Segundo

Saturday Aug 12/39

Conference w/ Eisenhower on various matters, re Velasquez & Garcia etc. He tells me about Gen V not being able to function on the basis of principles, that he always work on the basis of personal loyalty. This statement was made when I told him about Gen V promising the Scout officers their assignments. He said that he had told Gen V not to make any commitments in order to retain the freedom of assignments later.
