“Identical soldier letters to US newspapers describe accomplishments in Iraq” WASHINGTON (AFP) – Identical letters signed by different soldiers describing their accomplishments in Iraq (news – web sites) have been appearing in newspapers across the United States.
It was unclear who wrote the letter or organized sending it, USA Today reported. The letter-writing campaign could violate military ethics if it was intended to sway public opinion.
The letter from soldiers in the Kirkuk-based Second Battalion of the 503rd Airborne Infantry Regiment said the northern city had become “our home away from home.”
“The quality of life and security for the citizens has been largely restored, and we are a large part of why that happened,” the letter said. “The majority of the city has welcomed our presence with open arms.”
Identical letters have appeared in 11 newspapers, the daily said.
