"Letters for Logan" is the heartfelt story of a mother's timeless love for her son, and the legacy she is compelled to leave her grandson.
Air Force Capt. Derek Argel, 28, was larger-than-life--athletic, loving, dedicated, loyal and above all, a son to Debbie, husband to Wendy and father to Logan.
Within days of his tragic death in the line of duty on Memorial Day of 2005 in Iraq, the first letter to Logan arrived.
Then another came, and they kept coming, from friends, colleagues, warriors and family.
They still arrive, even years after the Combat Controller's death, each one weaving an enduring portrait for a little boy of his fallen father, gone too soon.
