Dear SKK: Please send information on how to become a mercenary. I have not served in any military but this would be a plus because i do not have attitude. I would be a great mercenary and an asset. I await your response. Answer quickly please i am ready to get started. – Mac the Merc

Dear Mac, Hey dude, that’s not in our wheelhouse. I really don’t think it’s in yours, either. Stay safe. Sincerely, SKK


Dear Susan, Thank you for your commitment to the principles and ideals that advance freedom in America and around the world. I love everything you do. – American Girl

Dear American Girl, Thank you kindly, and you betcha, doll! (sorry, couldn’t resist) ~Susan

They Want to Kill Me

SKK, You’re the only one I can tell this to. There’s a very, very long list of people that want to kill me. I’m stressed. The CIA told me this operation is so complex only one percent of the population can understand it. This is what you need to know. In the next few years there’s going to be rioting that rises to the level of open revolt. I’m writing you this letter so when you start hearing those rumors you know they’re true.  – No Name

Dear No Name, Stay safe. ~SKK


Hello Soldier of Fortune, We are offering General Colin L. Powell’s Four Star General’s Uniform for auction. We think you would be interested in acquiring this historically important item. I am attaching a link below to the lot on our website for your convenience. – Auction House

Dear Auction House, Uhh… thanks anyway. Signed, Soldier of Fortune

Well Done!

Dear Susan, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you personally for a job well done! I have been following you for a while now and I am extremely happy with the way you are leading the SOF TEAM. I have been a reader of SOF all my life. SOF had a lot to do with my upbringing. As a young man in the early 1980s trying to figure out who these people called terrorists really were and what made them tick. Once again thanks for all your wonderful articles and spot-on leadership of the staff of Soldier of Fortune Magazine. – John H

Dear John H,  Awww… thank you! – Susan

Need Old Article Not Sure When Published

Dear SOF, I was hoping to find an article written in a SOF magazine from the late 70’s to mid 80’s (I think). It was about a mission and the soldiers got ambushed and no one got killed, or maybe one guy did. It happened either in Vietnam or Korea I don’t remember which one, but the cover had a photo of a guy with a rifle. Please send me a copy of the article, and thank you in advance. – Searching

Dear Searching, Yep, we’ll get right on that. ~SOF
