Here is the e-mail that Morlock sent to his Governor, and family friend, on August 23, 2007:
Web mail from: Mr. Jeremy Morlock
address: 2 bn 1st inf reg bct Ft. Lewis WA 98433
Mrs. Sarah Palin rnrnSarah I wish I knew of a better way of getting in contact with you and I know your busy having a whole state to run but, I was writing because I had a question to ask. I guess I'll start off by letting you know where im at with things, being in the Army as an lower enslisted man its hard to get things done, I've been looking in to a regulation we have called a 'compassionate reassignment (AR 614-100).' It stipulates under certian circumstances a soldier can request to move duty stations to help care for family in need . I know you have known my family for some time and I think of you all as friends and you know my mother is now taking care of all the girls by herself while trying to keep a job. I'm not asking for pity for my family or myself, I'm just asking if there is anything you could do to help me with my process of getting home to Alaska to help. My direct chain of comand (team, squad leader) have been trying there best to help with out causeing! problems for them selves but, the fact is that my Unit is not really supporting me and trying to coax me to stay. I appreciate your time in reading this and any help you can offer.rnrn sincerely,rnPFC Morlock, Jeremyrn2/1 INF 5 SBCT
This was the response Track's good friend, and son of Todd's schoolmate received from the Governor's office.

Thank you for writing to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The concerns, opinions, and/or information you have sent are important and valuable to the Governor. Although she is unable to respond to each and every email herself, your message has been received and is being reviewed by the appropriate staff person in this office who can best address your need, suggestion, or comment.
We all know what happened to Jeremy Morlock after that brush off from Palin's office.
Just imagine how his life might have been changed if only the mother of his sister's best friends would have taken the time to listen to his plea. And you know she really could have helped him, after all she had little trouble keeping her son Track out of harm's way during HIS time in the military.
Update: Nobody is making excuses for what Jeremy Morlock did, he has to take responsibility for his own actions. But this young man entered the military to impress his father who then died in a boating accident in July of 2007. A month later, while still grieving that loss,and after hearing from his mother how difficult things were for the family, he reached out to his best friend's mother, who happened to be the Governor of his state, and asked for help getting back home to help them.
And for those efforts he did not even receive a personal response from the woman who he believed was a personal friend to his family
Somebody suggested that the Morlocks and Palins are still friends, but that is not true. Yes the girls are still friends with Bristol and Willow, but the mother has absolutely no use for Sarah and Todd.
After all it was THEIR house that Willow broke into back in December 2009, and after the Palins refused to pay for the damages, and then arranged for their daughter and her friends to get off while throwing the rest of the kids to the wolves, that pretty much severed any ties between the parents.
In fact Jeremy's mother, Audrey Morlock, has been doing every thing she can to hold her family together with absolutely NO help from her "friends" the Palins.
NOW do you understand how disgusting it was that Palin did nothing to respond to this young man's pleas for help?
