Yesterday I finally recieved my first letter from my recruit in parris island! I waited for about a month, checking the mail everyday when it came and yesterday was finally the day! When I first saw that my letter came I cried because I was so excited. Reading it, he said that he was doing okay but that he has been getting sick but he's trying to pull through so he doesnt get dropped. He also spoke of getting something called fat mans food that coming friday (hamburgers and stuff) he seemed to be really looking forward to that. Also he goes to the church there ( mainly to get away from the drill instructors ) but he also seems to be enjoying it. I was so relieved to finally see how he was doing and I will be sending out my first letter to him tomorrow :) God bless all of you and your recruits!
