I just wanted to put this up here since it definitely helped me through boot camp. I graduated on 20080808 and I'm home on boot leave. A member of this forum (David Blaylock) gave me his address and kept writing me all through boot camp. I have never met this man but the letters he sent helped me see past some of my own personal trash and get back to training. During Boot camp i lost contact with my daughter and couldn't find out if she was ok. i let this eat at me and almost thought about quiting to come home and know that she was ok. The letters that Cpl. Blaylock sent reminded me of the commitment i made to the corps. So the moral of my rant is that if you have someone to send you some moto mail it will be a god send during boot, and to say thank you to Cpl. Blaylock for his support.
