About Letters From Home
In 2010, Letters From Home was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and the show is now one of the fastest growing musical performances in the United States..
Erinn Diaz hosts and directs three incredible shows, (“America’s Bombshell Patriot“, “America’s Bombshell Duo” and “The Patriot & Friends“). Letters From Home started at the suggestion of Pat Dearth, Erinn’s father, who was a veteran of the United States Coast Guard. With their mission to honor veterans, active military and their families by reviving patriotism for all generations, Letters From Home has toured in over 35 states, and on cruise ships. In 2017. a documentary on Letters From Home, produced by David Hardy for OurState Television won the Emmy Award for Best Magazine Documentary.
The show is performed in theaters, for air shows, cruise ships, schools, patriotic celebrations, schools, military bases, VA hospitals, VFWs, American Legions and many other venues, all under the management of Nelson Diaz. Additionally, Letters From Home produces The American Story Project, a podcast with interviews of veterans and those who have been effected by patriotism.
THE MISSION OF LETTERS FROM HOME is to travel the country, honoring our nation’s veterans, active military heroes and their families by Reviving Patriotism through music.

Our Entertainment was and still is “Letters From Home” but now instead of a fundraiser for Coastal Bend Troop Support it will be an open concert for our communities that have been so devastated by Harvey. A free show.
I am again trying to get sponsors, a new venue as the Martha Luigi Auditorium (RFHS) is not available, will need other things now such as a stage, sound system, lighting, chairs, tent, RV for changing of outfits, things for an outdoor show.
Needless to say I need help.
This was going to be a show of “Giving Thanks USO Style” because it is a week after Veterans Day and a week before Thanksgiving. Giving Thanks for our communities, our Country and the people that make it great and those that came to help, the out pouring of love and consideration for others. Yes, we have so much to be thankful for.
I got the mail yesterday for CBTS. We got a bill (blah), a donation (yay) and one of the most heartwarming letters from a Marine (tears). I will try to get a picture of it to send but I have to warn you it is hard to read for a couple of reasons, first he writes really small and second he made a point to let us know how much these packages mean to those so far away from home fighting the war on terror. Letter will be later, gotta find a new way to send them. My right hand lady, Jimmie Kelly has damage at her home and is staying with her son.
So you see as much as I have debated to just close CBTS these past few weeks I just can’t because this letter came yesterday. The box was not addressed to him but as you all know they share what they get. He was going through the box for lip dew and in the bottom was one of our letters to our Military. Some of you might not know but we make sure we have a letter in each box to let them know we care and that is what he found. He said he really needed it that day. He really needed to know we are there for him and others.
We do have damage at the Market St location that I am hoping gets repaired but the Laurel St location is a total loss.
Hugs, Love and Prayers for you all,
