Dear President Reagan:
AIDS is imminently poised to spread through the mainstream of US society. Please issue, as
Commander in Chief, a purchase order to be paid to the first company that develops a vaccine against
AIDS for the innoculation of three million members of the military. This financial incentive and
a possible world market will stimulate private enterprise to seek a vaccine for AIDS. Then this
vaccine could be made available to all people.
