Roll Call

Do you have family or a friend serving in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan?

The Army has set up something they're calling "HooahMail," which is a service that lets you e-mail a letter and attach a photograph to your serviceperson and it is then printed, folded, and sealed into an envelope and delivered at mail call, usually the next day. It gives them something solid they can hang onto, keep in their pocket, and pull out to read again or look at that picture as often as they want.

Sounds like it combines the best of the U.S. Postal Service and electronic mail.


It was early at the Army base one morning and the sergeant was reading off a list of names of the men who had work party detail that day.




"Here, Sergeant!"






No answer.


Still no answer.

"SEEBACK!" the sergeant's face turned red.

Then he looked at his list closer, turned the piece of paper over to the back side, and continued calling out names, in a somewhat quieter voice.
