Letters To A Father

The following letters were written by the daughter and son of a father who was wounded in Afghanistan in 2010.  It was requested that we share them.

The Daughter's Letter (Written as a song)

"Remember Our Family"

Do you remember how you and mom first met...you guys fell in love instantly.
Remember when you first met us,
Remember how you became a father?
You use to smile and make everyone laugh.

Remember how you were our family
You use to make me laugh
You use to make me smile
You use to sing and dance with us

How did that disappear
Where did it all go wrong?
Do you not remember the good old days?
Do you remember "..." and when he laughed and smiled with you?


Remember how you were our family
You use to make me laugh
You use to make me smile
You use to sing and dance with us

I still remember everything that was still happy.
But to tell you the truth right now I am scared.
I am lost
I cry every night wishing my dad came back
The one who made me laugh
Cause I remember all the good times
Remember our family back then...

P.S. I miss you dad, you never smile anymore and it makes me sad.  I really want to have a good life.  You now yell and I can't takes this no more, I want it to stop.


The Son's Letter

I love you dad even though it may not seem like it right now I am.  I don't know if you know but I'm scared, scared that you are going to hurt yourself while we are gone.  Please I beg you, you have so much people, me, "...", even mom that love you so very much.  We will be back soon, it's not like we're going there forever.  We love you dad and we'll always love you.
