My son left for boot camp one year ago today, and yes everything is still done by snail mail, and they still have mail call. And that is still something they very much look forward too. They still have mail call at SOI as well.

I remember centering myself in front of the Drill Instructor's seat after he bellowed my name for mail call and sounding off " Sir, the Private requests his mail". Then he would throw however many letters you received at you and if any fell on the deck, the Drill Instructor reasoned they contained subversive material and he made you read them out loud. Needless to say many Recruits had to read some embarassing lines from girlfriends or spouses.

Email is great nowadays, but nothing beats getting a letter in boot camp from your GF that has the faint smell of her perfume on it.

Tell your sons girlfriend to "Stink it Up" with smellgood,
mark "S.W.A.K." on the outside of the back flap........
Maybe sneak in a piece of chewinggum inside the letter too, just for
"He'll have memories" !!!

one of just her in a halter top with hip hugger bell bottoms,
one of my two cousins in halter tops and hip hugger bells and one of her friend with a see thru halter top and hip hugger bell bottoms, sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit was I in trouble for about a week,
