GENERAL GEROW WITNESS ON PEARL HARBOR

From the September 25, Edition of Stars and Stripes



WASHINGTON, SEPT. 24, 1944—Maj. Gen. Leonard T. Gerow, commander of the V Corps of the First Army, now fighting in Germany, is in Washington testifying before the Army’s Pearl Harbor investigating board, the War Department revealed.

Gerow, who at the time of the Japanese attack was acting chief of the general staff’s war planning division, will return to his command as soon as his testimony is completed.

Meanwhile, Sen. Homer Ferguson (R-Mich.) said “it is reasonable to expect” a full report in the next two weeks from the Army and Navy boards investigating Pearl Harbor.

Ferguson pointed out that the Army board began its work on July 20 and the Navy board July 17, while the Roberts commission, which first investigated the disaster, completed its report in approximately a month
