When I first get up I go and go check the mail  to see if there is any new news about the war. When I get back inside I start doing my chores. During the week I check the mail in the afternoon too. Because it doesn't always come in the morning.

Dear Dad,
         I miss you so much. I am scared that I am going to go to the mail and there will be a thing from the army saying that you died.
