Marine Mom Thanks Nichols For Believing

Joe Nichols received a letter of much gratitude from the mother of  a United States Marine stationed in Iraq, after a trip there where Joe performed for the troops. The letter was signed "A very proud mother of a U.S. Marine," followed by her initials "J.K.M." In the  correspondence, the mom said that her son who is deployed in  Ramadi, Iraq showed more excitement in his voice than she remembered hearing in a long time, calling himself "fantastic." Her  son called her to tell her that Joe played for the troops the night before, and that Nichols stayed as long as necessary to sign autographs and take pictures. In the letter, the proud mom goes on to reference the lyrics to Joe's song "Believers." She said that she applied them to what was reality, and thanked Nichols for believing in the troops.
