Letters To A Soldier by David FalveyMrs. Julie Hutt’s fourth-grade class in Roslyn, New York, writes to a soldier in Iraq to thank him for his service and to find out what it’s like to be a U.S. solider: What is a soldier’s job exactly? How do soldiers spend their spare time? Don’t they miss home? The children’s letters were answered by First Lieutenant David Falvey, a twenty-five-year-old military police officer serving in Baghdad with the Army National Guard.
Combining the children’s letters and artwork with Lt. Falvey’s emails and personal photographs, Letters to a Soldier is a special book to be shared in the classroom or at home. An update on Lt. Falvey’s safe return home, the status of the war in Iraq, and classroom programs are also included.

Dear Soldier ,. Whether you're a soldier of the past, the present or plan to be one in the future, I would like to say thank you on behalf of us here in America. The daughter of a sailor, I have learned a thing or two about the strength and perseverance it takes to serve our country. You have given up opportunities and left behind family members to make sure I can fall asleep soundly in my bed each night. I have watched friends suffer the loss of their beloved soldiers and have visited cemeteries time and time again to pray for all of those who sacrificed everything they had. Soldier, you are somebody's child, somebody's sibling, somebody's aunt or uncle, somebody's wife or husband. They are all proud of what you have done and so am I.
It was merely one of those unimportant non-academic subject activities that was assigned to us ninth graders last year. In all honesty, I paid little attention to it due to the relative insignificance of this activity on grades an arguably flawed philosophy, quite agreeably , but now that I happen to revisit what I had somehow and someway produced then, I swell with pride at not what my then year-old self happened to compose, but the true spirit and immense sacrifices of the ever-vigilant Indian army men. The following assignment is not limited to the deeds of only Indian soldiers, but encompass the essence of border patrol and security forces that constitue the military resources of any country. To the soldier of India, Crimes, terrorism and disasters have become ubiquitous. Our brothers and sisters, family and friends, everyone is dying as victims of injustice, vehemence and wrongdoers. But you punish these malefactors, you protect us from them, so that we, young citizens of India, are shielded from being exploited or victimized.
