LETTER FROM A US ARMY SOLDIER IN RESPOSE TO MY INTERVIEWS

THIS LETTER WAS SENT TO ME BY A MEMBER OF MILITARY FAMILIES SPEAK OUT. IT IS IN RESPONSE TO THE INTERIEW WITH TWO US ARMY OFFICERS TWO WEEKS AGO. I COULD PUT A NAME ON THIS AND AN E-MAIL BUT I HAVE DECIDED THAT AS LONG AS THIS MAN IS STILL IN IRAQ, IT IS TOO DANGEROUS. IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO CONTACT THE MOTHER I WILL CONSIDER IT AS LONG AS IT IS DONE DISCREETLY AND IN A MANNER THAT WILL NOT COMPROMISE HER SON.
 
I AM RELEASING THIS LETTER IN AN EFFORT TO NOT ONLY BACK UP THE RECENT INTERVIEWS, BUT TO SHOW THAT THERE ARE MANY SOLDIERS WHO WISH THEY COULD GO ON RECORD ON HOW BAD IRAQ IS. THIS MATTER IS BEING IGNORED FOR THE MOST PART BY THE MAINSTREAM PRESS AND IT IS UP TO US TO MAKE THIS ISSUE PUBLICLY KNOWN.
 
THANK YOU FOR YOU HELP IN GETTING THIS LETTER SEEN AROUND THE WORLD.

Dear Jay:

The last interview you did brought tears to my eyes, and I certainly
think it is one of the best you have done so far. I forwarded it to my
son,and am sharing with you his response, he sent the interview for
several people to read. You are welcome to email him, but obviously
don't spread his email around, although he does not seem to be thinking
of it. He will actually finally be out of there within about a month.
Thank you for doing these interviews, and you can thank the commander
who did this one, please let him know that he is in our thought and
that
I hope that they will not be able to identify him. Tell him I'm sure
that his words reached the hearts of many of our soldiers over there
who
no longer no what to do or think or feel, certainly my son, who
otherwise really doesn't care for commanders and usually rejects their
opinions (it's the Army way).

LETTER FROM A US ARMY SOLDIER IN RESPOSE TO MY INTERVIEWS

>hey everyone.   The media and the government are betraying us,
the soldiers and those who want truth in what's going on over here.  It
has betrayed me. So presently there is no way for me to get the
truth out except through my friends and family.  I will never be sorry
for joining the army, and I am not turning my back on it.  I am still
in
Iraq going on a year though, and this is probably the only thing that I
can be proud of doing, because it is the only thing I have done that
isn't supporting a big corporation. The government contractors
are making billions off my life and my friends' lives.  If I die
tomorrow, I hope I will be protecting someone's way of life rather
than making someone richer.   Do me a favor if you can and forward this
to people you think would care.   all they have to do is forward
it.    we can't trust the media to portray the real situ! ation that me
and my fellow soldiers are in, but you are people I can trust. all it
would take is you passing on the word to people you trust.  And then
the
strength in our unity might possibly change this situation for the
better.  It is about all I can do FOR NOW, but if I die tomorrow I will
want YOU, the people who know me, to know that I did something.  The
following interview is basically my thoughts and feelings in a
nutshell.  But if you want to ask me questions on anything then just
email me.  I can't really say much from here, but that's why I'm asking
you to say it for me.  I love you all, that's why I joined the army in
the first place.  I didn't join to fight for the government, I only
swore I was willing fight so you all can live your lives free.  The
problem is that's not what I have ended up fighting for.  So please
spread the word.  If you look into history that's all it ! takes for
great
things to happen.  if you don't forward this I understand, just know
that I love you all and can only do what I feel is right.  Sincerely, 
A US Serviceman
