To the eminent Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, Imam Khomeini- may my soul be sacrificed for him,
While extending my greetings and salutations, I beg to inform Your Highness that most of the IRGC brigades and divisions were formed at the same time or after the articles of association of the IRGC were drawn up. Now, with the issuance of Your Highness's historic order on the formation of the three forces, we are in need of headquarters for administering the three forces. Should we want, we could use the old IRGC central headquarters for this purpose. Since the organization and structure of the old IRGC was formed on the basis of the articles of association for the performance of anti-revolutionary missions and people's mobilization through dispatch in the cities and towns, we have to make changes in the said headquarters both in terms of structure and form, which require the approval of the Islamic Consultative Assembly or the confirmation of your Eminence. We ca also form a distinct headquarters for administering the three forces, in which case your Eminence's approval will solve our present organizational problem. Based on talks with honorable Mr. Hashimi Rafsanjani, we arrived at the following arrangements:
1. The administration of the old IRGC, as in the past, shall be based on the articles of association;
2. Formation of a headquarters to administer the three forces.
God willing, with the approval of Your Eminence, we could achieve more than ever success and merit in serving the Islamic Revolution.
In need of your prayer,
