Secretary of the Navy

FROM: Lieut. LaFayette R. Hubbard, (D) USNR, 113392 (inactive).
TO : The Secretary of Navy.
VIA : The Chief of Naval Personnel.
Subj: Resignation — submission of.
1. I desire to resign my commission as lieutenant senior grade in the United States Naval Reserve as of this date.
2. Since the latter part of my active service in the war was served in a hospital, under treatment for nine months and since I have been before survey boards and the retiring board, I do not believe I could further serve in event of further emergency. Retirement was not granted but I am still considered to be 50% disabled by the Veteran’s Administration.
3. As a writer, I sometimes must write on technical subjects and while these have no bearing on naval matters or government security of any kind I would feel much freer were I not a commissioned officer, in the naval reserve.
4. In 1948 I tendered a resignation which was answered with a request from the secretary that I consider the matter again. I have duly considered this action and discover that I still find it expedient to resign.
5. As I would not be of use in the event of war, as I have taken no part in post war naval activities, it is certain that my continued commissioned status is of no benefit to the navy. It is therefore respectfully requested and urged that this resignation be accepted.
