    Letters to Recruits

    I would like to make this a sticky so that all new pooles can see that there is a route for them to get motivating mail while in Boot camp. I write one letter each week to every recruit on my data base. I filed away my records last month for 2007 and found that I had written over 396 letters to recruits on both Depots. I only require that you PM me before you leave and get my address so you can write me one post card or letter with your boot address on it. I will add that to my data base and you will get one letter every week for 9 weeks, that will get you up to graduation week. Of course if you should get set back for some reason, I will continue to write until your graduation week with your new platoon.

    If you have bunk mate that is not getting much mail, or he wants more, then forward his name and platoon number to me and he/she will be added as well.

    I understand that you are Recruits and don't have much time to write, so I recommend that you take that time to write your family and loved ones, but if you chose you write to me, that is great as I enjoy reading mail to. If you ask me to I will post whatever information you want to pass along to the poolees on this site as well.

    Again, I do this because I have time on my hands, I am a cancer patient, plus I enjoy helping you guys out any way I can. I expect no thanks form you just the chance to help you, that's all!

    cancer survivor here Dave. keep fighting, and yes you have a hell of alot of time. Sometimes you're looking for an excuse to get up and walk. Been there and it sucks. You have any ?'s about treatment just PM me. I'll answer them to the best of my ability. I know I'm younger than you but I"ll do my best on helping you beat this. You can, cause I did.

    I would recommend you take this opportunity poolees. This is one of the greatest things I possibly did and it was a welcome thing to not only get mail, but from someone of the caliber of Cpl. Blaylock. It is amazing the things he has done for a lot of us and he has been a true mentor and friend to me. This man puts 100% time and effort into helping all of us and I guarantee you will appreciate his insight, quips, news, and motivation that he sends you. It was by far my FAVORITE mail to receive at boot. I can not express how much Dave and his friendship have meant to me over nearly the past year now. I hope only the best for him and for you. He's 100% here to pass on the legacy of the Marine Corps to all those who wish to join the ranks, even after you have done so.

    Thanks again Dave for everything and Semper Fi big brother. Your efforts do not go unnoticed and unappreciated.

    Cpl Blaylock is awesome and serves as a motivator to all.

    Thanks from the other side of things for all the hard work you do brother. You are truly contributing to ensure the next 232 years of tradition continues.

    Unfortunately, I have no award to offer other than a brotherly toast

    I second this. I got letters from Dave, Kim, LL, JC, SSgt. PB, Justin and many other. I got more letters from them, than my family. It's a very good thing to have Marines write you and support you.
