          Dear Mr. Chairman

          As requested, we reviewed the audit report covering the facial   statements of the Jewish
          War Veterans, U.S.A, National Memorial, Incorporated, a federally chartered corporation, for
          the fiscal year ended March 31,1998. The corporation’s purposes include maintaining a
          national memorial and museum dedicated to commemorating the service and sacrifice by
          Americans of the Jewish Faith in the Armed Forces of the United States during periods of

          Federally chartered corporations are required under 36 U.S.C. 1102-1103to

          l      present the corporation’s assets and liabilities and reasonable detail on the corporation’s
                 income and expenses in annual financial statements,

          l      obtain an annual financial audit by an independent public accountant, and

          .      submit the auditor’s report and the corporation’s financial statements to the Congress.

          The objective of our review was to determine whether the audit report complied with the
          financial reporting requirements of the law. In carrying out our work, we reviewed the
          corporation’s financial statements and the accompanying notes, performed certain analytical
          procedures related to information presented in the financial statements, reviewed the
          auditor’s report, and made inquiries to corporation officials or the auditor as we deemed
          necessary. We did not review the auditor’s working papers. Our review disclosed no
          reportable instances of noncompliance.
