Marine Corps Boot Camp: Weight Loss & New D.I.

Marine Corps Letters From Boot Camp
Written by Kevin Webb

Don’t ask how, but I’ve managed to lose 10 lbs already. Went from 170 to 160 in 2 weeks. I guess that’s what ONLY having 3 meals a day will do to you. That plus full 16-hour days.

We picked up a new D.I. today. We have 4 now. He is huge, but more funny mean than scary mean. Make sense?

Our drill is coming together great. We hope to win initial drill and final drill because we are so far ahead of the other 5 Platoons in our Battalion.

I’m adjusting pretty well. The only things that I hate are always having to pee and the dumb recruits we have in our Platoon. We have 4 or 5 on Recruit Trial Training now. That means they have 10 days to get it together or they will be dropped. We have already dropped about 8 or 9.

I still miss my wife. That is probably the only thing that WON’T change while I’m here.
