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..

~Kelly's First Letter to Dougie~


I got you'r letters today Dougie. They were the most beautiful thing I have ever read. I knew you had feelings for me, But I had no idea they were that strong.  I had feelings for you too. But , as I do with almost everything, I put my career first. You probably already know this, but I quit the military because of you. I couldn't bear to see another young kid get killed in combat because of me. But now that I know that you forgive me, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I hope you know that I have only just read your letters and they have changed my life. I am planning on rejoining the military, and cleaning up my act all together.

Although you say you don't blame me, I still blame myself. I'm sorry Dougie. 

I will always love you Dougie.

With The Greatest of Love,

Kelly Rose

Kelly left this letter on Dougie's grave.
