We are asking for individuals in our local community to search through their own history- to explore your desk drawers, dressers, and boxes and ask family members involved in war efforts to contribute letters. We are looking for letters from any time period- from the Revolutionary War to the current campaign in Afghanistan. Letters written overseas or on the home front. Letters, cards, postcards and telegrams from husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends, and children. Handwritten, typed, or in email form- all contributions are welcome. Letters and photographs will be scanned and transcribed. For more information and to contribute a wartime letter, please contact Michelle Harris at 719-687-9281 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
