WARLETTERS.COM

I am a history buff and I have always enjoyed reading 'war letters'. I believe that these letters give a unique and personal insight into wars and warriors of all nations. This is a worthy cause and I would like to urge anyone who has 'war letters' to consider donating them to the Legacy Project so that others, in the future, will understand what so many sacrificed to insure freedom for others.

The primary mission of the Legacy Project is to encourage Americans to seek out and save wartime letters and e-mails so that future generations will better understand the realities of warfare and the sacrifices made by those who serve. We hope that this project, along with honoring and remembering veterans and active duty troops by preserving their correspondences, will bring attention to the importance of supporting these men and women in every possible way.

Currently the Legacy Project is working with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Foundation and Vermont American to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the VFW's Unmet Needs initiative, which helps the families of active duty troops. "There are many things I like about the Unmet Needs effort," says Legacy Project founder Andrew Carroll, "and I especially admire the veterans at the VFW who are running this initiative. I believe they are passionate about reaching out to military personnel, as well as to their families. I also like the fact that Unmet Needs offers more than financial assistance, but in-kind services too. There are many ways that people can help, and I encourage everyone to check out their website for more information." To learn more, please visit: http://www.unmetneeds.com/.

The Legacy Project will post additional organizations and efforts it is supporting, but helping Unmet Needs with their mission is our number one priority at the moment.
