Christmas with our families

Dear George:

Why is the military still in Iraq? Why can’t we spend Christmas with our families that have been over there - seems like forever now? My brother is on his third tour since this started his name is Michael Louis Cochran he is in the marines and has a kid and one on the way that he never gets to see!! I just think that if you get to spend holidays with your family so should everybody else!!!

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.

    Dean Dan,
    I am an ex-military Iraqi veteran, along with my husband, and when anyone joins the military they know that there is, always, a possibility that they could be sent overseas for war. Remember, the military is voluntary now. You should just be proud of your brother for what he and all other veterans have and are doing for their country. They are keeping the people in America safe-that includes you and your family. So, just be thankful he's okay and keep praying for him and the other troops.
