Alex Woodard received a box of love letters from Vietnam written by a flawed soldier to his young wife in 1968. The story that box held was one of service, sacrifice, love, and ultimate redemption which became a book and full-length album. Jennifer Fuller, Molly Jenson, and Alex released the book and album to her father, hoping the message in a bottle would find him wherever he is now.
A few days later they released it to world.
