John Michael Montgomery - Letters From Home

Got your handkerchief or tissue ready? If not, go get it, you WILL need it. Listen to the words, watch the video, and then WRITE some letters!

AA,
I remember that when I was in SEA my mother sent me a blank piece of paper and an envelope. She was mad that I hadn't written home enough. I got the message, since we were allowed to write home for free. I was an asshole. I wrote more often after that. Mothers, you gotta love them.

MK, Thank you. I just hope that people will spread the word. This song says it better than I ever could, our troops need to hear from friends, relatives, and even people they don't know. You can't believe how much it means to them.

L&OTeacher, you're right, that's the flip side. Family, but especially mothers and other immediate family need to hear from their troops. I did the same as you. My brother was the one who let me know that a letter every week or two was NOT enough! After that, even the girl friend didn't get as many letters as Mom. The girl friend ended up sending a dear John later anyway. Good riddance. She was in college and became a war protester.
