11. One disagreement
"What I do know is that you have my utmost respect, gratitude, and support. I lived roughly a block from ground zero. When you were sent to defend us my hopes and prayers went with you brave, selfless heroes."

You've implied that their deployment was a response to 9/11. In some ways that may be true for the soldiers and Marines in Afghanistan, but it isn't even the only reason they are there. And it certainly isn't the reason that our soldiers and Marines are in Iraq- except in the Bush administration's twisted and warped version of reality.

If you believe that to be the case, then by all means leave your letter as is. :)
