German Ship Honors America


There is much talk over the Internet about a beautiful thing done by the crew of a German Destroyer shortly after September 11th, 2001. The email sent by a female officer of that ship to her parents has been modified and changed by many in their attempts to share her beautiful, wonderful words. There used to be a corrupted copy of that email on this website.

I had an accurate copy of it at this website, and was asked to take it down by the author's husband. The original, published by permission of the author, can be found at:
