Letters From the Front

These are letters (and some photos) from the front lines of Afghanistan and Iraq of those that are serving us; people who have families at home and are putting their lives at stake daily for all of us. Some of these stories really bring home the sacrifice they make.

For security reasons, names and addresses of the senders of these emails are "redacted", since this information is available worldwide on the Internet and may be a security risk. If you would like to send an email or letter to one of the originators of these messages, please contact us via this website.
