Default Pictures and Addresses

Hey Everyone,

I ship for basic on July 15th which is a short 55 days away. I know they are really strict about what is allowed at basic and I was wondering if I was allowed to bring pictures or addresses of people who want me to write with me?!

Help would be greatly appreciated!
Heather

Take a only a few pictures and a small address book or rather a paper with the addresses.

Default Journal and Sending Letters

Thanks for the answer to the previous questions. Will I be able to take a journal and keep it or do I need to wait and get one when I go shopping at the PX? Also should I take stamps, stationary and writing things with me as well or pick those up at the PX also?

Last I heard, bring LOTS of stamps. From what I've read they become a currency of sorts among the recruits at basic. Don't quote me on that though. :P
