LETTERS HOME FROM AFGHANISTAN
We finally received a letter from Daniel, or should I say Lance Cpl. Wrighthouse. Mail to and from Afghanistan is shipped on a slow boat to China I think. We've mailed Daniel many letters and a package and he has yet to receive any. Daniel says he has mailed us several letters and we finally received this one.
The Marine Corps also has an e-mail program that is supposed to be faster than using the US Postal service but We'll have to wait and see. I know, there's a war going on and mail is an after thought for the military, but it is frustrating as a parent to not be able to communicate with your child, I mean Marine, in a timely manner.
If you are interested in using the e-mail program, it's called "moto mail," here is the web address: https://www.motomail.us/login.cfm?CFID=35675&CFTOKEN=706336eea9d88720-5B773EA2-957A-F967-CB17EA2F370B119F
You'll need to create an account (it's free) and you don't even need to use a stamp so click on new Moto Mail account and go from there. You can also send photos with your e-mail.
Here's Daniel's info that you will need:
