Letters From My Son

My son has written four letters since he left for basic training ten days ago. He has always loved to write, so it doesn't surprise me. I'll probably get a letter every couple of days, whereas I think I got two letters total from the oldest one.

He's safe and he's happy and he (so far) loves the Army. I've also had a phone call, and I asked him, "Do you like it?" He said he did. I asked, "Do you love it?" His answer: "Most definitely."

So, he's doing something that he loves. What more can you ask?

Ms. Terri, did you ask him about the physical demands? I remember boot camp being very physical, and this was NAVY boot camp. But that was a long time ago. Maybe they've eased up on kids since my time at boot camp and are allowing them more "ressio." You should be honored that your children are choosing the military, I salute them, and you.
