Remembrance Letters

Ever year since 1952, the Israel government sends letters to the families of soldiers who were killed on duty. These remembrance letters are sent on memorial day, usually in a special envelope with the memorial day stamp on them. Inside is a letter from an official (not sure if it is the prime minister, or the minister of defense). Just another interesting category of philatelic collectibles to get into.
