A letter from the fiance of Lnc. Cpl. Kaleb Lacy of 1st Platoon Fox Co., 2nd Battalion 6th Marines lies under a camo net at their Patrol Base near the Chor-Cherey bazaar in western Marjah, Helmand Province, Afghanistan, Monday, August 2, 2010. Marines serve 7 month deployments, and 1st platoon has no access to email and nearly no access to phones to call home, making letters their only real way to communicate with loved ones.
