To the Editor:

We are writing from Mr. Turton’s third-grade class at Trinity Christian School in Sacramento, Calif.

We are writing to ask for your help.

We have been studying writing letters and we sent them to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We hoped to send encouragement to them because they are fighting for our freedom.

We felt bad, though, that we could only send 15 letters (that’s how many of us there are).

We want to do more!

We have set a goal of collecting 2,500 letters to send to our troops overseas.

We are asking that you print our letter and ask your readers to write a letter to a service member and send it to use to forward to serviceman or – woman.

Also, we are asking that those who write a letter include an extra stamp and envelope to cover postage. The troops love to hear about sports teams, school, or anything that would remind them of home.

Please help us communicate that we are thinking of them often.

Thank you in advance,

Mr. Turton’s 3rd Grade Class
