Marine Corps Boot Camp Letters 2

For the next few Throw Back Thursdays, I plan on re-printing letters we received from Holly when she was a recruit at Parris Island. This is the first of many. If you want to be sure to see more, subscribe to the blog and/or send a friend request.

She mentioned that she was still struggling with the chow, saying there was hardly ever a vegetarian option, but that she knew that she would need the proteins to get help get her through the rigors of the physical training.
(When she left for boot camp, recruit Andrews was a vegetarian.)

She mentioned that she had become friends with a recruit from Virginia, PFC Reckley.
(Reckley, who she still stays in touch with, is a remarkable young woman who ended up being the platoon’s Honor Graduate.)

She went on to say that after free time the recruits get something called devotional prayer.
She mentioned that she can hear some of her fellow recruits still crying while this is going on, and how at the end all of the recruits are required to yell out AMEN!

She closed with telling us that she missed us and that she was going to write a letter to her recruiter letting him know how she was doing.
