Dear Mr. Goodlin,

Secretary of Defense Cohen asked me to respond to your letter of July 14, 1999, regarding an alleged injustice done to Vincent J. Burnelli, and the Burnelli Company.

We have thoroughly reviewed your latest correspondence and the materials attached to it.  Our review found no new information that would support your allegations, and provided no new information that could be used as justification for retracting the 1941 U.S. Army Air Corps report concerning Burnelli aircraft designs.  Consequently, the Air Force does not plan to take any further action and considers this matter closed.
