Letters from Basic #4
Dear Sweetheart, February 11, 2007
Today is my first Sunday in the military. They offer religious services, but none of them are Baptist. They have a protestant service that I will be attending,
We got to sleep in today until almost 5:00 a.m. I had guard duty from 3:00 a.m. until 4:00 a.m. and then went back to bed for about an hour. Even with guard duty I got more sleep last night than any other night so far. So far, everything is very fun and I am making a bunch of friends.
We have been taking it easy today even more than yesterday. Valentine’s Day is coming up in just a few days and we are going to be apart. I love you and I miss you.
So far it seems like I am gaining the respect of most of the guys. Besides, I’m the one that got a ninety-eight on the ASVAB. I have the highest ASVAB score in my platoon.
We have been doing some crazy stuff during our free time. Some of the guys did upside down pushups. We did some two minute sit-ups and pushups drills. We sat around telling funny stories for awhile. I laughed until it hurt.
I just got back from the chapel services. They played some music that I didn’t really care for, but otherwise it was a great service. It made me really miss our church which then caused me to really miss you! A few of my platoon mates went with me and we all had a good time.
I tried to call you today, but it didn’t work out. I tried to use a phone card but is said that the PIN was invalid. I then tried to call collect but I know now that cell phones do not accept collect phone calls. I then tried to call Jim but their phone doesn’t accept collect calls either. Oh well, God know and he can take care of us.
Remember not to write me at this address. Save up your letters and mail them to the address that I give you later. I love you!
Well Baby, I love you. I know that I am writing you a lot, but I really do miss you. I love you and I miss you. I am reading my Bible and praying everyday. Don’t forget to send all your letters to me when I get my address. Please send me a phone card with a ton of minutes. Thanks babe, I love you!
With all my love,
