Web sites helps soldiers communicate with families


WORTHINGTON -- Candy Kellen was fairly young when her brother went off to Vietnam to serve his country in the U.S. military.

While she was perhaps too young to understand war, she was old enough to know that her brother was in danger. She and her parents often waited for news from Vietnam on television, only to worry more if an attack involved his particular unit.

"I remember one time we had to wait 10 days to hear (from him after the unit) got hit," said Kellen.
