    Hello all,
    I received a letter from Nick today. He's been at basic training since Nov 10th or so. Anyway, he says he's doing well, the first 2 weeks were tough but now he's adjusted. His Drill Instructor is a SW fan and there are SW posters all over his barracs. He said he gets 8 hours of sleep every night. He wrote the letter on Thanksgiving, they had been given time off to watch a movie.

    His Graduation from boot camp is Feb.4, after which I believe he comes home for 10 days, then back to advanced training, then I think he has specialist school after that.

    Anyway, he could use all of the support and encouragement he can get (especially this time of year), if you care to drop him a line, here's his addy:

    Recruit Nicholas J. Winterfeld
    2nd Battalion Company H Platoon 2047
    Marine Corp Recruit Depot
    37003 Midway Ave
    San Diego, CA 92140-2047

    Be aware, it's my understanding that he can receive LETTERS only, no cards, no packages...until after basic, at which time his addy will change.

    Just thought y'all might wanna know....

    Boot Camp sucks

    I'm sure his [Marine] sucks more than mine did [Navy]

    But... if my brother can do it. Anyone can ;)
