Hello all,

Things certainly have changed dramatically since we spoke last night. The world is a different place today. I am safe and sound. We left Australia early. Every precaution is being taken to ensure the safety of the ships and crew. I am not permitted to say anything more than that right now. Please don't ask. The e-mail may be cut off again at any time, so please do not worry if you don't hear from me for a little bit. This is all for our security and is standard procedure when a terrorist attack has taken place against the U.S. We are watching it all on TV here. It is very emotional. I am looking on with deep sadness and intense anger. I want to again stress we are safe, and we will stay that way! Please let me know that Megan, Aunt Candy or anyone else who may have been in NYC is safe. They are telling us the e-mail should be up for a while, but we don't know how true that is. I will check it and send you all updates as much s possible. The line for this is very, very long right now. I was told I have a lot of mail waiting for me on the Peleliu. Thank you all so much. I should get it soon. I sent out letters to each of you. Mom and Dad, please forward the ones in your envelope to those I addressed them. I will be sending Australian postcards soon. I hope and pray all of you are well and not too worried. I love and miss each of you. Please forward this on to anyone I may have missed. I will be in contact again soon. I love you all.
