RENO, Nevada. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) --Nowadays it's pretty rare to send or receive a handwritten letter, but for soldiers overseas during World War II, Korea and Vietnam letters were often their only connection to home.

So at the end of each trip, Honor Flight Nevada organizers recreate that experience.

Guardians called each veteran by name, and handed them envelopes filled with letters. In all it's about 75 pounds of mail for our veterans.

The room was filled with gratitude. At times it was too much for words.

So guardian John Konvicka read some of the letters aloud for the vets.

Some of them are from strangers, and some from family.

No matter who wrote it, or what they said, the veterans will take more away from mail call than just the letters.
