Subject: Letters Home


Before my mother passed away, she gave me all the letters I had written home from Vietnam ... typos, misspellings, scrawled penmanship, and all. Reading those letters, in some cases, was a mix between 'remembering' more than I wanted to, and my first visit to The Wall. Nevertheless ...I think sharing letters written home from Vietnam to our friends and loved ones, could be just as meaningful to all of us, as we experienced the 'same walk' in general.

I'm am considering a new Menu section for the War-Stories.com homepage, to possibly be called "Letters from Vietnam" or just "Letters Home". So, the point of this post is to ask if anyone is interested and thinks this could be a good idea ... and possibly something for others to read long after we're gone? If so, start looking around and see if you have old letters home (including the envelope) you would consider scanning -- just as it is -- and emailing to Don Poss (dlp@war-stories.com). Of course you can withhold any letter you consider too personal, or, just request that personal letter be including in the Restricted Area/Current Members Only.

Don Poss,
Webmaster, War-Stories.com
