This postcard tries to put a positive spin on boot camp activities. Trust me, it’s not that fun. For example, washing dishes – the water is SO HOT, they assign another guy to pour icewater in your gloves. Then again, you can pass the time by watching the antics of GIANT Great Lakes cockroaches.
The guy sending the postcard, his girlfriend’s brother Charles is home from the war, so he asks if Charles’ dog recognizes him. I remember when I was gone for about a year, my dog acted like he didn’t know who I was- He knew, just holding a dog grudge. Those are the worst kind.
