After joining the Marines, a child wrote a letter to her parents who have been waiting in anticipation. The content of the letter was quite amazing.


A child joined the marines and sent a letter across to her parents who have been waiting in anticipation. In the letter, she greeted her parents and asked how they were doing.

Next, she asked her parents to tell her brothers Walt and Elmer that joining the Marine Corps is much better than working for old man Minch and they should join before spaces get filled.

She said she was restless at first because she had to stay in bed till almost 6 a.m. She told her parents to tell her brothers that all they did before breakfast was to smooth their cot and shine some things. 

The kid said there were no hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, and fire to lay. She added that there was warm water. She also said breakfast had more fruit juice, cereal, and eggs but fewer chops, and potatoes.


She said to tell her brothers that they could always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. She added that they went on route marches which the platoon Sergeant said were long walks to make them strong. 

The kid noted that the route marches were the distance between their home and mailbox. She said the sergeant was like a school teacher, the captain was the school board and majors and colonels did not bother anyone. 


She wrote she kept getting medals for shooting a bull and she did not know why. The bull's eye was as big as a chipmunk's head and all they had to do was lie all comfortable and hit it. 

They didn't have to load their cartridges because they came in boxes. The child said they had hand-to-hand combat training. They got to wrestle with the city boys. She wrote she had to be careful because they could break easily. 


She said fighting during training was not like fighting with the Old bulls at home and she was the best they got except for Tug Jordan from Silver Lake.

Their daughter said she only beat Jordan once adding that he joined up the same time as she did but Jordan was 6'8 and 300 pounds while she was 5'6 and 130 pounds. 

She told her parents to be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry up and join the Marine before others get into the setup and come stampeding in. She then signed the letter, "From your loving daughter."
