I understand there was a bill passed in the last session of Congress allowing
rescue and ambulance groups to receive surplus goods from the Armed Services.
We, here in Hope Valley, have built up one of the finest ambulance and rescue
squads in this part of the country but there are several things which a small
outfit with limited funds such as ours need. If it were possible for us to receive
such goods, it would be a very good way for us to expand.
Would you please advise me as to how, when, where, and etc. we can apply for such
goods. It will certainly be appreciated by the squad and all the people of the
I hope to drop in to see you in the near future. Thank you for all the trouble.
