Read the full letter below:
Hello!! Are you doing well!! I’ve received all of your letters and am enjoying them as I read them. When I receive the A4 paper filled with your letters, I can feel my squad members’ envious and fascinated gazes. Thank you. I read about Doojoon’s ice soccer, Junhyung’s new song, Gikwang’s variety shows, and Dongwoon’s musical. Thank you.
I also think you can see the Nonsan training center’s menu on the Internet… it’s really good haha. I’ve eaten my fill of breakfast and lunch today, so much so that I wonder, ‘Why do they worry..?’ and plan to eat my fill of dinner as well.
Oh, right. Today was the first round of evaluations for physical strength. I did 89 push-ups and 94 sit-ups in two minutes. I’m one step closer to becoming special forces… haha. But I didn’t do so well in running. I got around five minutes and 59 seconds for 1.5 kilometers… it’s a bit disappointing… I worked hard but they said only the second round points will count. I’ll do better in the second round. Of course I won’t go so far as to get injured…
We’re doing shooting tomorrow. I’m worried if I’ll be able to do well, but I will do my best. I’m getting closer with my squad members every day. My squad leader, platoon leader, company commander, and everyone is so good to me. I’m doing well without any difficulty, so please don’t worry…
I have plenty of time to see the clear skies, as well as the moon and stars in the night. Compared to city life, my heart is quite calm and I’m becoming carefree. I’m eating well, sleeping well, my bronchitis is getting better, and I’m truly doing well. I’m also receiving As every day for locker inspections… I think I’ll get quite good scores in my squad. Stay healthy and happy!!
From Yang Star (Currently Recruit No. 167)
