Chain Gang

There is a chain letter going around with yellow-ribbon images and several pictures of soldiers interacting with children and animals in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of the images here, although the image of the soldier with the kitten is notably misssing.

Recipients of the e-mailed letter are urged to sent it to thirteen people in fifteen minutes and are instructed to "hurry." It has apparently been circulating for over a year and has even created some controversy on atheist message boards, where would-be chain links complain about the religiosity of the first image. It's hard to figure out much about the letter's origin, since there are few clues other than a corporate disclaimer from a British food and pet products company.

(Thanks to Maiya Williams Verrone for passing it on to me.)
