For these Reflections From The Web, I have edited the e-mails so that the names of the authors have been deleted and information that may have been too sensitive to include was also deleted. Many of the e-mails are long and often part of a series of communications with an individual. I edited these e-mails to shorten their length but tried to retain pertinent information and content. Some of these e-mails, especially those from foreign-born people, have been edited for clarity and readability. I have not changed intent or substantive content.

My hope is that these "Reflections" may provide interesting insights to you about those who have been visiting the web site and will provide some insights from me as I have reflected on them. I have limited the number of e-mails to 38 and organized them so that each e-mail and reflection is on a separate page.

Thank you for your continued interest in The Battle of Kontum -
