    Got a letter from Socrates

    Well he wrote to me...i was surprised to hear from him so soon. He says its hell.. but he sounds like hes doing fairly well so that was good.

    Brackac..he said to tell you ... "suck my dick..theres no way the army is tougher than this" :noes:

    Anyways it was fairly short but im writing back to him right now so i dont put it off and forget about it...

    just thought id let you all know. peace.

    nah..the thread is a "surprise" as gay as that sounds. i told him we are all thinking of him at OT though so he knows. i wrote to him and ima print it off and sent it to him here.

    im sure some of you are good and can be trusted with sending him mail but i dont remember what he said but giving out his addy so i dont want to give it to anyone that he doesnt want to have it. too much mail or the "wrong" mail can be a bad thing. and to know what the "wrong" mail is you would have to be a Marine .... i got this from AO saying he was going to send him some goodies...which is NOT GOOD. please.... no offense to anyone. If he writes back and says its cool then i will give it out. peace

    Please do not post his mailing address in the forum. BigFodee went through hell because of that.

    And tell him I said "Thank you" for joining. Anyone that goes into the military during a time of war gets a :bowdown: from me.

    I never said Army bootcamp was harder. I said bootcamp was a joke in every service.

    I joined three months after Sept. 11, do I get a :bowdown: ?

    I remember having to do 200-300 pushups for someone writing on the front of the letter. Every mistake was worth like 20 pushups, and the drill sergeant considered anything on the front to be a mistake. So each letter, not word, was a mistake :(. Made my night fairly long.

    Got a letter from SOCRATES FOR OT:

    I got another letter from socrates and he asked me to post what he wrote here so ima be a brother and do it... here goes:

    Hey OT military crew.
    Im on training day 9 now, about 3 weeks in. Im getting my wisdom teeth pulled today, so im getting a break, for the day. My platoon is off doing MCMAP while imm standing front post. I tried to bitch out and go home my first night here, buy my DI ust called me a little bitch and told me to get back in the rack. They couldnt make me leave now. Homesickness was a bitch, but im over it now. The drill instructors are truly not sensitive to anyone. A recruit broke his ankle yesterday and they told him him he hopes he dies. We have to cram some much knowledge inside our heads. its rediculous. Im glad i came to MCRD instead of PI, because this weather is beautiful! This place however is hell. 10 second showers, usually 4 minutes to eat(sometimes he cuts us off early) and a lot of IT'ing. I almost broke when i got smoked for a long time. I definately spent toomuch time lifting weights instead of running, and im paying for it now. We have initaial pft coming up and im not sure if i can run 3 miles. I almost die when i run 1.5... well i dont want to get caught writing this!!..bye OT


    that is all.


    I should get a fucking NAM or something. fuck.

    i got my 2 bottom wisdom teeths pulled about the 10th week in. they shot me with novacaine in the morning, pulled it in an hour, and i went back to the platoon for TMPQ bed rest for 3 days.

    of course bed rest means standing guard duty. also gave me a lot of vicodine pills that i sold off for 5 bucks a pill.

    Man, homesickness was a bitch. I remember getting all teary when reading letters from home, and full-fledged crying from the first one. :dunno: Maybe I'm just a big puss.

    He probably doesn't even have wisdom teeth, they're just gonna pull out some back tooth to torture him or something and they'll probably do it with no novacaine :bowrofl:.

    I had to write a letter home in front of my commander in Tech School. Apparently my mother contacted the Red Cross because she hadn't heard from me since basic training. Tech School was 9 months long. :mamoru:
