Longhand Note of President Harry S. Truman, August 27, 1950. President's Secretary's Files - Longhand Notes.

Aug. 27, 1950

Yesterday, the 26th I listened to a report from Gen. Collins and Adm. Sherman, who had been on a tour of Korea. They gave me a good report. The General told me that we have a good field commander in Gen. Walker. The Admiral said our sea forces have high morale as the General said of the land forces. Both assured me that ground, sea and air forces are in complete harmony including the Marines!

That's really something.

McArthur is acting up, as is the Secretary of Defense.
