Wordless Wednesday++++

An Oldie but a Goodie!
 Back when my husband was in BCT we found the 13 weeks of nothing but snail mail border line intolerable, so within week 2 we came up with this thing where on the back of the letter you would trace your hand and draw a heart in it, so when the other person received the letter you placed your hand on top and it was our way of holding hands through snail mail, it has now progressed to tracing the heart in your hand and clinching it tight - its how we "hold hands" from 800+ miles away. Whenever we're lonely, or miss that person, or stressed, it kinda grounds you back to what matters. Ha, I dunno I guess its our corny "thing"

  6. Got your comment...no I have never heard Boot Camp referred to as BCT, honestly only Army (I thought) used BCT as Basic Combat Training. We use SOI (School of Infantry) or MCT (Marine Combat Training) ...guess you learn something new every day..lol in all my years never have I heard it called BCT...lol. Guess you younguns have something to teach us "seasoned" wives..I even asked my hubs he said BCT is Army..hahahaha..tomato tomatoe...lol..hope school is going well!
