CPT Jeffrey Russell Snyderabout this book: Odes From The Sandbox is a field kit for the Soldier stationed away or their family back home. It is a compilation of my own letters sent to my Beloved Lisa while she waited for my return. In the age of instant communication, this encourages those to write letters that will be a keepsake and a memory long after the Ode is written.
Each Ode was written from different Countries and locations, but gave me an opportunity to express my feelings for her in a fun and meaningful way. This book covers over two years of Odes and an explanation of my thoughts behind the Ode at the time.
Along with each Ode, the next page is a postcard type page to give the reader an opportunity to write their own Ode to send to a loved one. It offers encouragement for a writer to put pen to paper and express themselves to their loved one.
The primary readers of this book are Soldiers and their families, but can easily translate to anyone who has a special someone that they want to keep in touch with. I have been blessed with readers who have become emotionally involved in this book. Several WW2 veterans, Soldiers, and their family members have come to me with stories of their own.
This has been a wonderful journey and I hope that others will see how much love there is in the World today between Soldiers, their loved ones and many others.
