Subject: Korean War - Letters Thesis

Dear Mr. Dechert,

My name is Luke Macauley and I am Masters student from Belfast, currently taking American Studies at the University of Glasgow. I am undertaking a thesis on letters home to America from soldiers during the Korean War. I discovered your email address at the page and was wondering if you, or any veterans you know, would be willing to discuss, via email, certain aspects of Korean War letter writing eg what was written, how, and why etc. Furthermore, if you know of any surviving letters whose content you would be willing to discuss, or any information you feel I might find useful, this would be fantastic! It would be greatly appreciated if you could pass my email address on to other veterans.

Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Luke Macauley
