CW3 Cesare Giannetti, U.S. Army (Ret.), shared a special bond with his sister, Marisa. While serving overseas in Germany, the Gulf, Croatia, and Bosnia, he wrote her letters. This was in the 1980s and 1990s, before the internet, before affordable overseas telephone calls when letters were the means of connecting with friends and family. Writing to his sister, Cesare was able to share his ups and downs, and his challenges. Marisa kept all of Cesare’s letters, promising to return them all one day when he was done with the army. He did have all the letters returned, but not until after his sister had fought her own deadly battle with cancer, a battle she lost.
Letters to Sis is a memoir of one man’s service to his country and one man’s powerful bond with his sister. This is a story, a testament of faith, and a testament of selfless service to one’s country. It is also a story about one man coming to terms with himself and his life, sometimes under very difficult and life-threatening situations.
