I often write on this blog, rather than do other things. I read something somewhere that I want to comment on and I do it here. But recently, for the last six weeks, I’ve been writing to Soldiers and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of the posting I would do here normally has been written into a personal letter and sent off somewhere far away. It’s a bit strange to write someone you don’t know. But I remember being gone from home in a stressful place. I would have read anyone’s letter, if only it were written in English. So I write. They say they’re glad to hear from me. So I write less here.
If you want to write, go to www.anysoldier.com and pick a Soldier or a Marine and write. They might respond. They might not. But you’ve written and they’ve received the letter. That’s your part of the battle.
