Inspired by our troops fighting overseas, an 11-year-old Georgia girl wrote a Christmas letter to an unknown soldier in Afghanistan. As the months passed, the young girl feared the worst. The soldier's wife said, "I heard that because she didn't hear anything back, she thought that maybe the soldier had been killed there and her letter never made it." Fortunately, the sergeant who received the letter was alive and well. Touched by the her heartfelt well wishes, the sergeant and his wife got in touch with the girl's grandfather to arrange a surprise appearance.
