Hey guys I miss you, what have you been doing back there. Over here we have to do a lot of drills and march up hills everyday. I hope the weather is fine over there because here it rains a bunch and we have to walk through mud and puddles as well from every day. And my squad thinks that I am weird because I joined the army and I don't want to fight or even hold a gun. Right now we are learning about strategy and tactics which takes up most of our day. Also we have to eat hard tack but everyone here calls it soilder bread. I sometimes have to stay and watch the base at nighttime because the confederacy might try to sneak atack. There is many guns over here and some artillery. Make sure if there is water for the crops because you don't want to have no food. And I will try to send more letters home to you guys. I'll see you soon.
