My nephew, PFC William David Rippy, is serving in our U.S. Army. He's is 24 years of age.
My heart is especially burdened for him, as he lost his Mom a few years ago to cancer. Most of the soldiers are probably sure to have a letter from "Mom," but not David. A couple of specialist have been supportive and helpful to him. They are not receiving any correspondence from anyone, so reports David.
