Thank you for sharing these letters. I am a history major in my third year of college, and I have never come across something so powerful and personal. I am working on an assignment about the Korean war and this is the greatest treasure I could have found. These letters have been inspiring. I wish you all the best.
God Bless,
Ellie Strickland

It's a good thing that we post our father's letters. They allow us all to connect with our history and the very human side of the war. I'm sure they are healing to some - even me. Thank you for doing this. Now I have to go back and read them.

I was doing a search for Camps Crawford & Strong where I found the link to your webpage. I'm excited that you have posted your father's letters. They are so full of information.
My father was an ordinance clerk with AAA HQ. While his letters are interesting, I sometimes need to do research to understand what was going on at the time. I will probably bookmark your site and contact the 45th Museum. Thanks for posting.

I just spotted you on Twitter and came here to check it out. This is very nice. I will check back from time to time and read a little more. I'm writing a book about my dad's experiences in the Korean War and his struggles with PTSD, so I have been very interested in all things Korea. Thank you for sharing.

I am so grateful for these letters, as I am lucky enough to see letters from my dad to your mom, and learned more about the great friendship our dads shared before, during , and after the war. I treasure them, and the love story between your parents should be made into a movie.

Thank you so much for sharing the letters. I love reading them for 2 reasons the first is i am a history buff and love to see the human side of war. The second is that I have served and still am in the reserves. I just got home from a year in Africa for the U.S. Navy. so I know how your dad had felt. Thank you again

HI! I told my parents about this but I need to show them how to access it. I know they would both enjoy reading it. They both loved and appreciated the notes and letter you've sent to Mom while she is convalescing. Thank you for sharing these precious memories Liz. (((Hugs)))
