In case you want the original doc that I received (the above was created as an image for the blog), here's the complete 2 page letter (it's an Adobe PDF file):
The response is appropriate and has every Chief's signature on it.
Update: Here's the email that went out from a Marine Brigadier General which contains the reply from the Washington Post - apparently, they are "processing" it:
Subject: FW: "24 STAR" Letter -- AS DELIVERED
From: Krusa-Dossin BGen MaryAnn
Subject: "24 STAR" Letter -- AS DELIVERED
1) a scanned version of the signed letter -- which has been
delivered to Washington Post
2) a copy of the editorial cartoon
With regard to the Washington Post's response: They are
processing the letter, and anticipate it will be in Thursday's edition.
That is not a guarantee, but a strong likelihood.
Thanks to Seamus, Geby, Barb, Pete and Brian for sending the information.
