Do you have war letters to share?

Mothers' hearts are the unseen casualties of war.

It has been that way as long as there has been war. Young people fight. Mothers wait and worry.

On May 9 - Mother's Day - the Enquirer would like to publish examples of the letters that soldiers and sailors have written home to their mothers in wars from the last century - World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War and from Iraq, as well as letters mothers have sent to their sons and daughters serving overseas.

If you have a letter you are willing to share, contact Enquirer reporter Howard Wilkinson at or call 768-8388 or write him at The Cincinnati Enquirer, 312 Elm St., Cincinnati, OH 45202. (Please send copies of the correspondence, if possible, and include day and evening phone numbers.)
