As another Minnesota soldier is lost in war (Spc. Joseph A. Kennedy-25 yrs. old) I am reminded of the power of remembering. Andrew Carroll’s powerful book War Letters documents 200 letters from soldiers covering the Civil War,  WWI, WWII, Korean and Cold Wars, Vietnam, Persian Gulf and Somalia and Bosnia wars.  Perhaps just as important it started an impressive idea to preserve these priceless letters in the Legacy Project.  LA Carlson
