Letters Home - Son to Father
I'm writing a book about the Vietnam war (conflict). It's a fictional account of various soldiers serving in the army and marines during that conflict. In portions of the book I want to include portions of letters written from the soldiers to their loved ones back home. Background: These are soldiers serving in combat. They are living in grave danger, yet are attempting to reassure and be optimistic about the future. Please include background if applicable at the end of the letter. Are you a veteran? Is this part of a real letter written home by you or others? This one is similar to two previous challenges, with a twist: The father is a decorated veteran of the Korean war. The son is also faced with the task of living up to the father's expectations. Winning entries will be included in the book with full credit for their work. I will select up to 20 winners. I will invite selected winners to submit hand-written copies of their letters for inclusion in the print version of the book. We will negotiate a fee.
