In Metairie, Louisiana, a class of first-graders at St. Angela Merici School wrote letters to the father of one of the classmates. Capt. Mike Anderson, a Air Force Reserve member, was recently stationed at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar when he received the package of letters from the 20 kids. And, then, he wrote each child a reply letter! You can read the entire story on the New Orleans Times-Picayune website, http://blog.nola.com/eastjefferson/2014/03/metairie_first-graders_shower.html.
