This person is more than likely deceased or very elderly. I believe you would have better luck if you released a little bit more information like who it was addressed to or who wrote it. Camp Barkeley was only around from 1941-1945 so there should be a very small window of people from Patchogue. Maybe contact a VFW for the 45th infantry, 11th and 12th Armored Division or those that attended Officers Candidate School. These are the men who trained there.

Without the names it will be impossible to identify. maybe an old time mailman would remember the names if they lived there for a long time which seems likely since the letter is still around.

Hello all! I asked the names not be posted because whoever claims it will be able to identify the names :) Thanks for your suggestions!
