"Dear Mrs. _____________:
Thank you for contacting me recently regarding the media
and news about deployment of troops. It is a pleasure to hear from
As you may know, more than 500 journalists are embedded
among U.S. troops. This has revolutionized media coverage of
war. It has given us real insight and appreciation for those brave
men and women that are risking their lives so that we can live in a
free world. However, I share your concerns and agree with you
that family members should receive deployment information before
the media. In this new era of increasing technology we need to
achieve a balance between disseminating information and privacy.
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please continue to
keep me informed of the issues that are of importance to you.
Member of Congress"
Mel and Rose and everyone,
Did any of you have the same luck?
