Albany-- How difficult is it for troops at war to be away from loved ones? You can get an idea from a play at Albany's Marine Corps Logistics Base.

Tuesday night, "Letters from the Front" was performed for the first time at the Base Theatre. It's set in 1945 and features real letters from American troops. Rector Roberts Productions began performing the play in 1994 during Desert Storm. They say the message remains relevant today.

"It talks mainly about what the deployed soldiers and the military people go through as well as what their families go through," says MCCS Operations Officer Patricia Blocker.

"It was a tie that bind, that soldiers from all the different wars had waited for their letters and that was the beginning of it," says producer Marsha Roberts.

The play is free but you need to get a ticket at the Albany Chamber of Commerce, the Albany Mall or Cracker Barrel. The last show is Wednesday night at 7.
