Kids write the troops

Kaitie Pusey and Brandon Metzter

EDITOR’S NOTE: Two students in Liz Kreel’s sixth-grade class at Summit Middle School wrote the following letters that will be sent to Silverthorne soldier, Sgt. Nathan Reynolds. Reynolds is currently in active duty in Iraq.

Dear Nathan,

I am a student at Summit Middle School in Frisco, Colo. I have watched the news with terror when the news reporters talk about Iraq. My hope is that you guys are safe.

It must be very dangerous and hot out there. Here in Frisco, it is frequently cold.

I wish I could help with the war somehow. It makes me feel nauseous to think that people like you guys are over there risking your lives, and I’m sitting on the couch watching it all happen.

Tell your unit that I said hi and that I wish them all good luck. Keep up the good work and good luck.

Yours truly,

Kaitie Pusey

Dear Nathan,

I am a lucky kid in my opinion. I live in Breckenridge, Colo. Whenever I hear the word Iraq, I think of you soldiers who are there. You probably don’t want to be there right now, but when your country calls, you have to respond. In my opinion, you’re very brave. You are Mickey Mantle, George Bush and America put into one.
