Mr. Jenner.
I am Albert E. Jenner, Jr., counsel for the Commission, and this is Miss Oliver. Would you rise and be sworn? "Do you promise on this deposition which I am about to take of you to"tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Miss Oliver, this is Dennis Hyman Ofstein [spelling] D-e-n-n-i-s H-y-m-a-n O-f-s-t-e-i-n. Is that correct?
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And Mr. Ofstein, you received, did you, a letter from Mr. Rankin?
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes. sir.
Mr. Jenner.
General counsel for the Commission, with which were enclosed three documents, a copy of Executive Order 11130 creating the Commission to investigate the assassination of President Kennedy.
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
That is an order of the President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson.
There is a copy of Senate Joint Resolution 137, authorizing the creation of the Commission and a copy of the rules of procedure of the Commission which we adopt.
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And you appear voluntarily?
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
The Commission, as you have leaned, from those documents, is investigating all of the facts and circumstances surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy, and to give particular attention to Lee Harvey Oswald and anybody who had any contact with him during his lifetime. It is our information that you had some contact with him, or with people who had contact with him. The Commission is interested in that contact, and I would like to ask you questions about it, if I may.
Mr. Ofstein.
Very well, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
First, tell me a-little bit about yourself. Are you a former serviceman?
Mr. Ofstein.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And what branch of service did you serve?
Mr. Ofstein.
I was in the Army, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And when did you go in and when were you discharged?
Mr. Ofstein.
I went in in August, I believe, in 1957, and I Was discharged November 1960.
Mr. Jenner.
That was an honorable discharge, I assume?
