Please read this first-hand account of tsunami relief effort
I posted this letter, sent by a naval officer in the center of the relief efforts in Indonesia who gave me his permission to post it, late last night and it has not been seen by nearly as many DUers as it should be. It is moving and so vivid that you feel connected to this man. He and the personnel on his ship (the USS Abraham Lincoln) deserve our support. He says that he has never been so proud to be part of the military. You'll see what he means.

The full, unedited letter (he gave me his permission to post it this way) is here:
