Status:
Probable
Discussion:
A dispatch in November of 1968 was signed by Furnell, with Bounds being the Originating Officer and Kaufman being the Releasing Officer. The dispatch was signed in the name of the Chief, Western Hemisphere Division (WHD). At this time this was William V. Broe, which was probably an alias for W. J. Kaufman, mentioned above.

In October, 1969, C. M. Bounds, WH/1/R, was the Originating Officer and John C. Murray, C/WH/1, was the Releasing Officer for a dispatch signed by Furnell.

For a dispatch signed by Furnell in August of 1970 Charles M. Bounds, AC/WH/1, was the Originating and Releasing Officer, and Brown, WH/COG/OPS, was the Coordinating Officer.

Therefore, of the three dispatches signed by Kenneth G. Furnell mentioned above, only Charles M. Bounds' name appeared on all three.
