PFC receives demoralizing letters from 6th graders

ALa has this story about school children who wrote a soldier serving in Iraq demoralizing letters. From the content of their letters, it really seems like they were coached in some way. I am really glad that the soldier spoke up about this. I wonder if any other soldiers have had a similar experience.

It's one thing to write a letter like that yourself, but to encourage 21 eleven-year olds to write such letters is just harassing the soldier, not to mention the questions it raises about indoctrinating the students. It really irks me when teachers use classrooms as their own personal soap-boxes.
