I have a confession. I haven’t posted the letter from my Navy Sailor brother yet because I’ve been hemming and hawing over if the total blunt truth straight from the mouth of a semi-salty sailor would put you all over the edge with me.
I’ve sent the letter to a couple of friends to gauge their reactions and we all agree it’s completely and harshly stereotypical of sailors, females on board, and human behaviors in general. The letter contains a lot of truths, some hilarious exaggerations, some offensive generalizations, and a dose of real life on an aircraft carrier for months on end. That being said….here it is. If you hate it, don’t hate me. If you love it, send my brother a carepackage. If you think his letter is offensive but still appreciate the fact that he’s out there on a boat for months away from friends and family, send him a letter? A nice one?! 🙂
A few things you should know: My brother calls me Gogie, I call him Buds. He is a great and decent guy with a fantastic sense of humor. I love him to death and if you say anything mean about him, well…do it elsewhere. This is my blog and I’ll not tolerate anyone hating on my family. Remember my post the other day?! He wrote this letter June 14th…I’ve been sitting on it that long. That being said…here you go.
