Pulitzer Prizes (6!) for the Washington Post: Our story

Coverage of this series of stories from the Washington Post earned them a total of six Pulitzers!
Here's the original story, with a picture of my husband (and children in the background)

So good to hear that the soldiers' dilemma and your family's story and that of so many others affected by the war has truly been "heard".

I had no connection to you when I saw the original expose in the Washington Post and was horrified by it all. I forwarded the internet link and actual print article copies to my family. They had not seen any coverage of it...in the beginning.

And then I found you in a cleaning forum!!! Such a small world.

The Pulitzer is such a notable accomplishment and your husband's revelations on these atrocities will hopefully continue to improve conditions for our veterans. I sincerely hope that the 'politics' don't get in the way of the improvements and bog down the progress.

Sincere congratulations and a hearty thank you to all of our veterans!

It is a small world. I am hoping this will revive the need for more improvements. I am just very happy to see them win the prize because they did such a great job on the story.

Thanks Suzi...Muwah!
