I'll bet the kid could get away with it, if he told his Drill Instructors:
Sirs, I have been ordered, by my mentor, wrbones at leatherneck.com to deliver to you the following message from him.
Now, as a special favor to him, please kick my ass.
(Although they have a sense of humor, Drill Instructors hide it very well.)

Hey everyone, this is Soon2B's girlfriend. I just got home from saying goodbye to Brian and lemme tell ya, it's a sad thing to do. But I know he'll do well, and I just hope that everyone prays for hism and wishes him luck at Boot. Feel free to talk to me whenever u want cuz I'm trying to learn about the Marines in order to support him. I love him so much. Take care.

If you have any questions or concerns, or just need an ear to listen or a shoulder to lean on, give me a shout. I'm a woman, and I can understand a lot of things a girlfriend may experience. Like the old saying goes, "been there, done that!"
One key issue is to remain supportive towards the person in boot. That is really the hardest time. They need to hear that all things at home are well and to simply write back cheerful stuff - no "dear john or dear jane" letters. That would be cruel.

What kinds of things did Brian say about all of us - behind our computers? Especially about Bones!

I wish him well on his quest to earn the title. I myself have to wait yet exactly another 123 days before I'm 17 and able to have my parents sign on the dotted line. I've waited this long though, so 123 days and another year of school shouldn't be too bad huh?

hi. all! soon2b's mom, here! meg is right...yesterday was rough.
we are very proud of him even though he instructed us not to be...yet! he is so worried about getting thru boot! a friend of ours loaned us the video of his graduation...really interesting. i wish brian could have seen all of it before he left...especially the section on the crucible. i know boot is rough, but brian is very determined.
