    It's hard that I can't see him or even hear his voice today but anniversaries are about the time that we have spent together, not just today. 65 days. We can do this.

    Do they hold letters in boot camp?

    Or how long does it usually take for them to get the letters. I started sending them out last Monday morning and I got a 3 page letter today (lucky me!!) but he was asking me to write back so I don't think he's gotten anything from me yet... The letter was dated last Thursday.
