Letter from Basic# 8

February 15, 2007

Dear Sweetheart,

It has almost been a day since I wrote you last. I tried to call you on Sunday and found out that cell phones do not accept collect calls. I was disappointed when I didn’t get to talk to you. I can’t wait until I can talk to you everyday. I love you and I miss you!

Today was freezing cold. We had to wait in formation for over an hour and a half. Even with my long johns and my overcoat, I was unable to stay warm. They have us get in formation at 4:15 A.M. for a meal that begins at 5:30 A.M. It was very cold!

We got our dog tags today. SWEET. My dog tags are the only necklace that I ever had and probably will every will wear. I like this particular necklace though, because of what it represents!

We have a guy here who has been trying to get out of the military. First he tried to get a medical discharge by saying that his arm hurt. Then he tried to get out by saying that he was gay. He reminds me of Klinger from the old show called M.A.S.H. Klinger would wear dresses and everything else to try to get kicked out.

Another man simply said that he wanted to quit. The drill Sergeant made him stand up in front of everyone and shout that he was a quitter. I can’t quit, unless there is a major emergency or death in the family, I can’t quit. I love you and I thank you for your wonderful love and support. Thank you!

With all my heart,


P.S. I love you!
