I did hear from him last night but other than that the best communication is writing writing and more writing.
Be advised that usually Drill SGTs will make the recruit do 20 push-ups for each letter received. If it's a choice between no letters & no push-ups they'll take the letters every time.

You can always tell the guy who gets the most letters - his arms & shoulders are huge!
