Families and Friends Share Letters to Soldiers

Beginning Thanksgiving Day, Day to Day will begin sharing holiday letters to our military troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We begin with Denise Gionet of Pelham, N.H. She reads a letter she wrote to her son, Dan, who died a few months before Thanksgiving last year.

Denise De Vynck, who runs the Web site LettersToSoldiers.org says anyone can write to our troops. Hear what family and friends write to their loved ones serving in the military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

De Vynck talks to Madeleine Brand.
