Letters from Basic# 11
I miss you a lot but I am so happy to doing what I am doing. Every day I seem to fall more in love with my new job. We went on a four mile march today in full uniform, body army, weapon, etc. There were a few of the guys that whined and fell down. You know me though; I didn’t think that it was too bad. I can’t wait to see you. I love you!
We have been taking a lot of classes. They have started with a lot of basic stuff like personal finances, uniforms, marching movements, hygiene, and stuff like that. Today we began more advanced classes. We took some first aid classes that covered the Heimlich, CPR, Combat first aid, and things like that.
We do a lot of PT and when we first got here my whole body was sore. I didn’t mind it though because I know that it makes me stronger. I feel good now though and I feel as though my muscles are already developing. I feel great….. And hungry. They make us eat really fast and we hardly even get to finish our plates. That’s alright though. Some of the guys get really discouraged whenever we get in trouble, but I’m sort of getting used to it. I have a lot of exciting training ahead of me. I hope that everything is going well for you. I pray for you everyday. I beg God to watch over you and to love you for me while I am gone. I love you!
All my love,
