The Secret Letter

Today, go the the following link and read the article titled, "The Secret Letter from Iraq." It is three pages long. Please read each and every word.

Then in your own blog, create a post (with a link to the article) that discusses your thoughts on the article and also how it relates to Slaughterhouse-Five.

Consider the following points as you write your post:

How does the soldier's experiences in, "The Secret Letter", compare to Billy Pilgrim's experiences in Slaughterhouse-Five?

In chapter one, Vonnegut writes about the difficulties of writing a true war story. Is the author of "The Secret Letter" successful in his attempt to capture the truth? In which ways is he successful? And in which ways is he not successful? Does he encounter similar hurtles as Vonnegut?

What is the author's purpose for writing the, "Secret Letter"? Is the author pro or anti war, or neither?

Again, please include a link to the article and remember that your post need to be well written and at the very least 2-3 paragraphs in length.
