To the Editors - History of 20th Engineers
It is to my mind an excellent effort on your part to endeavor to compile a history of the very important work of the 20th Engineers, which will not only be of value to the public but will, it is hoped, inform all of the men of the regiment of the enormous amount of work carried on by this regiment, of which only those members who were familiar with the work at headquarters could have fully appreciated.
Colonel Edwin H. Marks
The record accomplished by the 20th Engineers and the auxiliary units attached to it is one of which every member can well be proud. I consider the year in which I was fortunate enough to be a member of the 20th Engineers, as one of the most valuable in my life and it gives me the greatest pleasure to have this opportunity of expressing a word of greeting to the members of the organization.
Major, Corps of Engineers.
