    Back in the day, the more mail we received the more push-ups we did (per letter).

    They still practicing this today at BEAST?

    I'd hate to be smoking my own kid by proxy for sending too many letters :redface:!

    Sir/Ma'am,

    There are no consequences for the amount of mail. However, pink envelopes with hearts all over it may be the cause for some push-ups:yllol:

    True story: My Beast roommate's BF sent her scented letters every single day. Every. Single. Day. His dedication was impressive, but the amount of cherry pickers we had to do because of those letters was not appreciated. :biggrin:

    No push-ups, just attention.

    2016 here, and I agree: pink envelopes are a great way to get noticed. One ambitious and extroverted Squad Leader read a poor New Cadet's letters from his girlfriend aloud to the entire platoon, so writing everyday may not be best.

    All said and done, I probably couldn't have gotten through the summer without being able to write home.. I would have lost my mind!

    Good luck to you and your New Cadet.

    make sure to send them Air Force and Navy recruiting letters.

    These are extra special...

    A "Fly Navy" bumper sticker will be coveted too!
