Just got back from watching Act of Valor and was wondering where I can find a copy of the exact wording of the letter that was written to the unborn son.

I've tried Google and didn't have any luck. A copy of the letter must have been posted somewhere by now I would think.

Haven't found much - this was on yahoo answers, part of it was used in that letter? No idea on where to find a complete copy. Short of going back and transcribing it while watching the movie

These are the words of Tecumseh, Cheif of the Shawnee. They are good words.

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and
Demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life,
Beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and
Its purpose in the service of your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend,
Even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and
Bow to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the food and
For the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks,
The fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and nothing,
For abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts
Are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes
They weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again
In a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
I'm a duck! Quack! Quack!

No, it was "presented by Tom Clancy."

It was actually written by someone else, just like most of "his" recent books.
