Why???


Why must boys do this crap? This coming Thursday is one of the spirit days at Cody school. Camouflage day if you couldn't have guesses from the pictures. Why on earth he didn't just think to put on some camo clothes instead of using markers directly on his skin?! He has been working on it for a few days without us knowing about it. I was wondering why he had been wearing long sleeve shirts...to hide it of course. I'm not exactly sure just how far he planned to take it but I can see from the green line on his neck, that he wasn't planning on stopping at the one arm. It's going to take a lotta scrubbing to get that boy clean!
We finally got a call from Chad Sunday morning. I was so relieved to hear from him. He was pretty emotional, but doing okay. He said they didn't get to sleep for the first 3 days and that he hasn't actually started basic training yet. I think he goes there today. They have just been doing drills, getting dental and physical stuff done. They have mostly been putting him through really mean mental games. Hammering in to him that his family hates him and his girlfriend is having sex with every Tom, Dick, and Harry. I understand the need to make the boys ready to conform to military life, but to attack his family is wrong and he is really upset by it. He said they even show these "movies" that show how families are so much happier once the boy has left home and the girlfriend doing it with his best friend. That is so vulgar to me. I've been angry ever since I got off the phone with him. He was looking forward to going to church in the afternoon, so that he could have a little bit of peace and a bit of familiarity. I know he will be strong and when they start the physical training part, he is totally going to smoke them and be at the top of the class, because that's what he does best. We just pray that he stays safe and hangs in there until graduation.

That makes me mad too! Guess they want them to be in a really MEAN frame of mind!

Cody looks so pleased with himself ... lol ... he's got spirit, yes he does ... sorry ... HAD to say it!

How on earth can bringing someone down the way they did with Chad in any way HELP him? Our government is doing this? Oh my gosh ... I'm so mad I could just spit. I'm so sorry to hear they use such tactics. My brother-in-law is a Marine and he was a former recruiter ... I've got to talk to him about what they do. That is just not right. Chad has been raised in such a loving home ... he knows what's right and what's wrong. But, what about the kids (yes, I KNOW they are adults, but they are still kids!) there that do not have the same loving environment that Chad comes from? They may start to actually BELIEVE the nonsense they are being fed. I'm just really upset by this. I'm so sorry your son had to endure this craziness.

Okay ... sorry ... I've stepped down from soap box ... I know if my son was there enduring that nonsense I would be as upset as you are.

Oh my gosh that is so.... so ....so.... well I think its funny. (sorry) actaully I was checking out the close up and its a pretty good job. Hope he doesn't do his face yikes. don't take him to the jungle you will never find him.

I know they do a lot of mental things on those guys, and a lot of them don't make it. His heart is strong enough to know the truth. I am counting down the days....

man...that sucks. i know the idea is to break them down into obedient men and women, but i agree - no need to attack family ideals..especially when that may be all these kids have.
prayers for you & your boy...p.s. - try Lava soap on your other one...THAT'LL get that stuff off!

Wow...I almost didn't see his arm (hahaha)

Yeah, the military is a piece of work. I had a friend in the marines and he used to tell me some pretty sick stories of what they did to the boys in there...mostly though, he didn't like to talk about it. I wonder why they feel like they have to do that to the boys? It seems pretty gross to me...and I'm wonderin if it was always like that?

Luckily he comes from a strong family that loves him, and I hope he can hang onto that!

Wow, Cody did quite a job. Josh was all "why?" just like you. LOL I'm glad Chad arrived safely and hope all settles down and goes well.

That is the first time I have ever heard of that kind of movie at bootcamp! You have so much to be proud of, though... just the fact that it bothers him lets you know he is on the right track!

Baby Mark is gorgeous! I sure hope he gets to go home soon!

Jen said...

Okay why in the hell would they do that to those boys? Why would they do that?? That is horrible...absolutely horrible and wrong. Poor kid....Assuring his family misses him and worries about him terribly...and I'm sure his GF does too.

Oh that is soooo wrong!

Cody looks lovely, I thought it was a tatoo when I first saw it. All that work, are making him take it off before spirit day?
