Response to Original message
In the next post, which will be as a reply to the one I now write, I am going to copy a letter we just received from the mother-in-law of another soldier stationed at Ft. Stewart. I have removed the names, but the story is real, and it is something that we felt was worth sharing in its entirety. I have already forwarded it to some people that we trust to be able to help this family, but we wanted to make sure that it was posted here.

What you are allowing us to do by keeping this thread alive, and by letting us speak out here, is to allow people like this mother to find us.

What you are doing is giving us a chance to reach out.. so that the people who need to hear us, and who need the resources we have, by the Grace of God, been allowed to gather, can find us.

We are just doing the work we have been asked to do. We are doing what should be done, but it is not something we can even begin to believe we do alone.

We could not do what we are able to do if it were not for all the good people, just like all of you in this thread, and the independent journalists who are making the link to this thread available to their readers.

Please believe in us when we tell you.. you are all very important, and you are all very much appreciated. If the work we do saves one life, gives one more soldier a voice, brings us all one step closer to the PEACE we all know is coming - then our work has meaning, and cannot stop until we've reached all the people we can.

THANK YOU... we can't tell you how much what you do means.

Monica and Kevin
