I admit that I've fallen down in my duties to the Alliance of Free Blogs. However, I see this week that they've got a contest going on that warms my heart. It's called "Cheering Up A Marine," although properly speaking it's "Cheering up a Recruit."
It seems that one of our Alliance members - Chris of FlashBang - has joined the Marines and is currently enjoying the delights that boot camp has to offer.Being a monster, I once sent a postcard to a friend in Boot Camp addressed to:
It's a tough row to hoe, but perhaps we can do something to lighten his load.
General [Recruit's Name], "The Pushup King"
PLT XXXX, Echo Company
MCRD P.I., SC
But let's try to come up with something nicer for our fellow blogger. The Alliance suggests jokes. Jokes are nice.
