Default Letters

I'm sure you all know by now that my boyfriend just started the BCT portion of OSUT at Fort Benning last Friday..

I have like 15 letters to send to him, but I wanted to know if there is a limit to the amount of letters I can send him at one time (I was going to send them all in 2 or 3 envelopes.)

Thanks

there is no limit but he might get teased with all the mail. the drill sergeants might throw his letters all over the place but I think they are nicer now and days lol.

You sure like to write but I always think that is a woman's thing.

Well, he can handle a little teasing, on the inside he knows everyone is just mad jealous because thn ey don't have people writing them that much

Jk. & yes, I love writing. I actually enjoyed writing essays in high school.

Is it like really horrible that I decorate them? By decorate, I mean I color them, give them borders, add random drawings, and little riddles and mini word searches..

I also kiss them lol...

I had to do 20 push-ups for every letter I recieved. You might want to keep that in mind before you send them. Thank God I didnt get all the junk mail I get these days!

Eww that is kinda gross! Do hey really do that?

But I think it's cute you have all those letters. I hate writing essays. Letters are better much easier.

I tried to warn her about decorating the letters and sending so much. When you get a letter back from your bf thats written in chicken scratch because he can't hold his arms up anymore from all the push ups and its begging you to stop decorating an spraying perfume on the letter, I am going to laugh and say I told you so.

1) You haven't even been to BCT.
2) You're the only person who has had anything negative to say about my decorating.

1) I don't have to have been to BCT to know that a recruit will get smoked for having hearts and lipstick on his letters.
2) I never said anything negative about them. I simply said what would happen when you bf recieves them.
