Airborne Mail - Operation Market Garden and the 101st Airborne Division

The following letter is an extremely rare artifact -- a letter from Division Command to be read to 101st Airborne Division's parachute and glider troops prior to the initiation of Operation Market Garden in September 1944. Note the last sentence indicating that these sheets were to be destroyed after each jumpmaster read this message to his troops.
