5/12/67 Dr. Martin Luther King Dear Dr. King: As a former WASP & now only a WAS; and a veteran of 104 missions over the "Hump" I wish to applaud the wisdom and courage of your position. How can we right only body of wrong in the world while simultaneously carrying on an equally horrendous act? You have my support I hope you will not become discouraged. Remember that Christ also suffered great injustice and un-popularity. Such is the smallness of men. Respectfully, Arthur LeSueur
