The girlfriend is officially gone for boot camp. She arrives at the base sometime in the middle of the night, has to stay awake for three days straight, and then will undergo nonstop marine corps recruit training for 13 weeks.
I told her I'd write her every day. Even though I won't be able to send the letters for a few weeks, I'm writng the first one today.
I have a bad habit of writing really long letters. I'm sure she'd appreciate the detail, but they only get one hour a night for personal tasks like showering, cleaning, studying, and reading and writing letters. So, a letter that would take a while to read and respond to is out of the question..for the majority of the letters.
I see my role as an unwaivering source of love, pride, support, and encouragement. Though, I'm unsure of what all I should include/excude from my letters to express that.
If you were in physically and emotionally intense military training away from your home and civilization for 13 weeks, what would you want to read in letters from your significant other?
