Marine thanks girl for letter — 21 years later

December 19, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Tracy Caisse doesn’t even remember writing the letter.
After all, it was in the third grade. Her teacher at the former East Woonsocket Elementary School had told her to write a letter to a soldier in the Gulf War as a class assignment.
When the phone rang two weeks ago, Caisse didn’t recognize the caller’s name or voice. He said his name was Robert Diaz and he wanted to thank her for not forgetting him while he was digging bunkers and dodging Scud missiles in Saudi Arabia.
After 21 years, the ex-Marine had answered the letter Caisse wrote to him when she was eight years old.
