Your recent inclusion of articles "Iraq Report With Huron's Maj. Rich Ramsey" has provided a refreshing insider's perspective to the war in Iraq. Regardless of your position of whether American soldiers should or shouldn't be there, Maj. Ramsey's articles have provided readers a humanistic side to the conflict and a better understanding of the role U.S. forces presently perform. It provides a sensitivity about the Iraqi people whom we are supporting and their own sense of patriotism and national pride. It provides a sense of purpose for the soldiers now present in Iraq and in harm's way and reinforces the need of all Americans to support our armed forces throughout the world.
These types of articles are not ones that sell newspapers. Stories of conflict, crime, and politics routinely make the headlines. You're commended for giving this type of story front page status. It gives a positive spin to something often viewed negatively or with controversy.
I look forward to reading Maj. Ramsey's future Iraq Reports.
