I was honored to participate in a reading of one of the fallen soldiers’ letters. Reading Howard Curtis' letter allowed me to better understand what went on during WW1. I have great respect and admiration for those who have served our country and have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country. It was sad reading the attached letter knowing that Howard wasn't able to make it home to see his family once again.
