Dear Partner,

My name is Sgt.Patrick Duke, I am an American soldier with British background, serving in the 
military with the army's 3rd infantry division.With a very desperate need for assistance, I have 
summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am

compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole,Of which my 
brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb.

was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. he does  not know
