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:

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:
LCPL Wrighthouse, James, D.
2/2 E Company
Unit 73070
FPO AE 09510-3070

Randy, you should delete the above comment in Chinese, it is an invitation to a sex site. Sorry that your blog has been infiltrated.
