A perfect letter from the perfect person to respond. I love Joe's reply; from the tender discussions on how he is a medic, the fact that he's not God and it's not easy, to the closing remarks about staying in his childhood for now. One of my favorite letters for sure!
Good job, El Gringo Loco!

Wow, what a lovely little letter by CHF. I love how it's always alluding to Danny's scrap with Billy - even when he goes to different topics. And what a neat "aloha" ending. An adorable note, and a worthwhile aspiration.

Bethany, you really flushed out Howard's character and life in this chapter, right down to the lack of tooth paste. I'm not sure if we've seen a letter quite so detailed in this story before.
You've also added some dimension to Addison, who never speaks in the show, if I remember correctly. The little touches about Klink the Fink and his real name really show us what kind of person he is.

Nice letter and response by Bethany Peat. It was an interesting view of life in the USA in wartime for one of the children of a busy single mother, contrasted with the details of life for a POW in Germany.
I like your use of Slim as the respondent; his was one of the names Schultz called out in a mail-call on one of the episodes, and there was a tall lanky extra in many scenes who I always assumed was him.
I think what I liked best was Howard's concern for the families of the POWs who might still be unaware of their loved ones' fates: "Maybe you should write to them instead of me."

What a precious reply. So much wisdom in a few words, easily accessible to a child, but with a hint of sadness that comes from having seen too much of the ugly side of life. A perfect letter to inspire a future member of Hawaii 5-0. :)

Oh wow, that is a nice long letter and reply! I love the little bits of things through out this chapter like Howard's brother pulling up carrots and Slim saying that if somebody called him Edwin he'd look for the new guy. Great job!

Lovely response to the pervious letter! Also a great character to use for writing a reply.

Nice Five-O reference there. That's a really cute letter.

And Howard thinks his life is boring? I can see that from a child's perspective it would be considered boring and anything else would seen exciting. In the beginning, I thought the response was from Carter, but it's good to see another of Hogan's men Corporal Addison is right, in a few years when Howard is old enough, he's going to wish for the days when he was a child without so much responsibility. Loved the 'Klink The Fink' name. I think it's from A Goose Cooked by Radar episode if I'm right.

Nice response EGL. I can see Joe giving that information to a little boy who wants to save lives when he grows up. But he spoke the truth when he said sometimes you can't save everybody despite doing your best. The other good piece of advice he gave is to enjoy being a child while you are one, because millions of children are forced by the war to grow up too quickly.

I think that's the perfect answer for Danny. Good job

This was a very heartwarming letter. Though, a little sad when Wilson brought up the fact that he can't always save lives- definitely reminds me of "Operation Briefcase."

What a nice response, El Gringo Loco. And a perfect choice of prisoner to write the letter, too. I like that Joe suggests several ways to serve others, but reminds Danny that the opportunity to do that will come in time.
The final paragraph reminds me that millions of children were robbed of their childhood by the war.

This had me LOLling:
"Have you ever saved a life? How do you do it?"
