Mourning the Death of Handwriting - TIME
I'm both grateful and proud to say this is the project I've been a part of for the past decade. As an Army brat, I'm privileged to have had the opportunity to locate literally thousands of family members for soldiers still unaccounted for from Southeast Asia, Korea, WWII and even WWI. I love this "work" and it means the world to me.

Am going to repeat my request for folks to help Andrew Carroll on his HereIsWhere.org initiative to uncover and mark our hidden history. Andrew is the best-selling author of books like "Letters of a Nation" and "War Letters," and founder of the amazing Legacy Project (www.WarLetters.com) which has already saved a remarkable 80,000 war letters (no kidding). In this latest undertaking, he's going to all 50 states. You can contact him via his HereIsWhere.org site or on Twitter (@HereIsWhere). And you can follow his HereIsWhere blog on www.Blogs.NationalGeographic.com. Please help spread the word! Thanks!

Love this latest project of Andy's! If you know of any of our nation's hidden history, please let him know!
