Dear Plamann Blog:

Hey y’all!  Today as we completed our final march, which consisted of what is known as “Drag Hill Brother’s” march.  It all went well except for the fact that we had to wait (which felt like a lifetime) to each chow.  The rest of day is what drill sergeants love to call “weapons maintenance,” before was called cleaning weapons.  Clever thinking drill sergeant!  Next week Vic Forge, and then graduation….and then I have the opportunity to myself some real coffee. MRE coffee is starting to get old, and I’m tired of begging folks for their coffee. 

Everyone here is going crazy, and it’s driving Plamann and I crazy, but we are somehow able to manage.  It’s nice that we have been able to get to know everyone here, and the sense of brotherhood/sisterhood is definitely there.  Today Plamann and I donated to the AER program too, which surprised me that there wasn’t more people.  I figure if you pay X amount of money for horrible food here, why not donate/contribute to something that is necessary.  Tonight, VIC FORGE PREP, and tomorrow.  I believe all will go well, and the moment when I meet Mom & Pops Plamann will be soon.

Take care y’all.
