On offer are two United States Navy internal documents, dated 1957, regarding Commander Thomas F. Armstrong’s posting.
Commander Armstrong served in the United States Naval Reserve. On September 20, 1957, he had written to the Commandant, SIXTH Naval District inquiring about a request to be attached to the Naval Reserve unit in Raleigh, North Carolina
The reply, dated September 26th, indicates that no decision has been made and that he remains on temporary pay status.
