The memo is the recommendation that a First Lieutenant be allowed to resign from the military for the good of the service because he has lost the confidence of his senior commanders. He had a lapse in judgment and the memo states "[He] will be punished by his own actions. He has humiliated himself; his chain of command, and his family He will not go home proud or with pride and honor deserved. Instead, he will go home in disgrace with neither award nor sense of accomplishment".
