I wish it was sooner, like last week! but its almost here.. so i'll be patient. And he sounds like my SR, he stayed up late to write me also many of nights. I hope you recieve many more letters, have a great week too... I know mine will be great once I see my Sailor again ;)
Heyy- thats great news.. im happy you received a letter, eventually- they'll start flowing in regularly.. Maybe I told you wrong but graduation is this coming up Friday 8/5- so I have 5 more days. Im super excited.. Take Care
Im not sure of what all Hell week consist of- all i know is they wake up at 4am every morning that week.. but BattleStations is there final test- that covers everything they have been taught and determines if they are a Sailor.. its usually on the Wednesday of the week they graduate from 8pm-8am.. theres a video on here that tells about it the whole experience in boot camp. Ima try to find it and send it to you- it was exciting and emotional to watch.. And aww.. no letters! well today is only Tuesday.. at the beginning they only mail out on Sundays.. so maybe later this week..
Thank you- I received another letter yesterday- it was short and simple but very special. Yes I'm attending graduation. I have no idea what's happening this week- perhaps last fitness test and writing test before battlestations21 next week. I would love to know the website. Hopefully the mailman brought you a letter while you was away.. Ttyl
And my Saturday is going okay, what about yours? An I'm sorry about the mailman not bring you some relied. But good thing is- today's Sunday and they had holiday routine from 7-1 and could write home. So possible expect something next week. And I'm here to talk if that make anything easier! Lol :) week.
I received my third letter this week today. You know when I think about it- it takes a strong woman to wait as long as we are with little to no communication. I wish you the best on your journey with your SR. Keep in touch.
