Early Ronald Reagan Signed Military Discharge
Out of stock
What a splendid promotional photo of Ronnie! In all likelihood, it was available to casting directors throughout the film industry in his early silver screen career. However, the central attraction of this offered display is his signature as applied to the discharge papers of a fellow WW II soldier. Reagan was an Army captain, and in that capacity, he was an adjutant officer authorizing military separations. This single-page document provides the vitals for the discharge (actually, separation from active duty) of another officer – one Major Jerome Maurice Sackheim. The name may not be immediately recognized, but entertainment enthusiasts will remember Jerry Sackheim as a screen writer for later productions in films and television. This separation was effected in Culver City, California where, evidently, both were stationed. Sackheim’s listed military occupation was “scenario writer of AAF [Army Air Force] training films.” However, one of the curiosities divulged here is that Sackheim was discharged fully one year before the end of the war. Further, his “Type of Discharge” was not “honorable”, nor was it “dishonorable”, but instead, “other.” (Hmmm.) In any event, this is a Ronald Reagan “autograph” that we’d never expect to see in the pages of a publication such as this catalog. It is immediately legible and cleanly signed (9) “Ronald Reagan Capt. A. C.” With the photo, this smartly matted and framed display measures 21″ x 16″.
