    Monday is the 14th...but yeah..

    All the best to you -

    Remember it's a 'game' of sorts. They will NOT actually KILL you, but perhaps make you WISH they would :)

    You'll do fine!

    Remember me saying this...
    "If I only knew then what I know now"
    Military is alot different when you get out of training.

    Remember this....

    Boot camp is actually easy, all you have to do is what they tell you to do.

    Forrest Gump: DONE, DRILL SERGEANT!
    Drill Sergeant: GUUUUUUMP! Why did you put that weapon together so quickly, Gump?
    Forrest Gump: Because you told me to, Drill Sergeant?
    Drill Sergeant: Outstanding, Gump! This is a new company record! If it weren't such a waste of a fine enlisted man I'd recommend you for OCS! You are gonna be a general someday, Gump!

    Good luck Wolvie, you'll do great! If you get to Chicago and are over 21, I'll buy you a beer. Better yet, send you with my son! (You'll have more fun! ;) )

    Awesome, man. You'll have to give me a no BS review of it when you get back. My advice would be to take it like wrestling practice; one day at a time.

    Everything will be fine if you can get by the first medical visit...
