My dearest Makaela,
I'm sorry I have not had time to write lately, things have been going non-stop. I have finally finished training and have been given my first duty assignment. I'm to be assigned India Company 3rd Blt of the 1st Marine. They have a long history of serving the nation in some of the toughest conflicts known. I hope that I can live up to the people that came before me. I look forward to learning and growing as I go throughout my Career. I have missed you truly more than I ever through possible. Maybe once I get to my station you can fly over and we can hang out while I'm on leave. Well hun, I gota go you would not believe the shear amount of shit that I have to pack up. I will call you once I get to my new station.
I love you with all of my heart,
PS: Let the family know I said hi, and thanks for coming to see me on family day.
