Letters To Dougie

Dougie Hardesty's family business was enrolling in the military. His father did it, his father before that did it, and so did his father. So it wasn't a surprise when he did. But what Dougie didn't know, was that his trainer, Kelly Rose, was one of the best. She was one of the only trainers who went one on one with each of her men. She was tougher than half the men that came through the MEU Ground Combat Element. She never let any man phase her. She never let any one man get into her head. Untilthe tragedy..until Dougie..


13. Hardesty's Helping Hands

~Kelly's Second Letter to Dougie~

1 Year Later


I'm writing you again to tell you about how you changed my life.

I'm back at the MEU, and I'm still training kids like you. But I have a strict 9 month training code in which they must recieve 9 months of training before being sent into combat. I also started the Hardesty's Helping Hands foundation in which young children and their families who are living in combat zones are moved to a safe house and have the choice when they fighting is over to move back into their village or get a new home elsewhere. We have helped hundreds of families, and it's all thanks to you Dougie. I have been sober for 8 months, which in my eyes is an achievement all it's own. Even though I am NEVER planning on going to one of those bullshit military support groups because I ain't crazy.

You're an amazing person person Douglas.

That is just one reason why I will always love you.

With the Greatest of Love,

Kelly Rose
