Got another letter from my son at Navy Boot Camp

Got another letter from my son at Navy Boot Camp. He sent this last Sunday ( the 5th ) and he already called us Tuesday. He graduates this Friday the 10th. Div 259.

His letter home below.

"The 20 min run was fun
I passed the final PFA ( Physical Fitness Assessment ) and I also passed Test 3.

Results below

1 1/2 mile run 10:49
2 min Push Ups 62
2 min sit ups 97
Test 3 3.8

The gas chamber sucked. I had a hole in my mask and they told me "You will live" so I got every pill of tear gas. Plus I was in front of the hot pan, that thing they drop the pill on. I did not throw up or anything, but I could not see at all for a few minutes. If I would not have had a hole in my mask it would have been easy. You get one pill for less that 30 seconds.

We had Captains Cup yesterday ( Saturday ) My Div got 3rd out of 12. The Seals division got 1st. The Seals division chant was that song "Afternoon Delight" which I still find funny, seeing a bunch of to-be Seals hopping and skipping around while singing that song.

I can't wait till Tuesday. We get a Pizza Party, Navy Ball caps, a phone call home and we are going to watch the movie "Saving Private Ryan". Well I have to shine my shoes for graduation and we now do all laundry in-house so I have to help with that too. ( 76ish people to clean clothing for )

Talk to you Tuesday.

Love, John "
