Mail Call – January 24, 2011
Radar – Walter O’Reilly – Stopped By Today!
With Ben in basic at Fort Benning communication is a whole lot different than it used to be. No more cell phones and no more constant texting. Since he’s been gone we’ve received a total of three phone calls from him. One the day he arrived to say “I’m here!” Another the Saturday after he arrived where we chatted for about a half hour. The final call came this past Friday and it was about 5 minutes in length. The call was long enough for Ben to say orientation is done and now the hard work begins as Boot Camp officially begins. We don’t know when we’ll get another phone call from him, but he is writing to us a lot.
This is now the fourth letter we’ve received and it came today! So it seemed only appropriate that today’s pic is of General Sarge reading the latest news from Ben.
By the way, the letter was very upbeat and positive. Ben is enjoying his training. But, he said he wasn’t too thrilled with the 3am guard duty he had to pull a few days ago.
Staying Army Strong!
