    Default A sons letter home.

    Dear Mom and Dad,

    Well, I finally transferred to the Navy from the Army and things are looking good. It was really great that the Army understood my situation after the "incident". Just remember, mayonaise and battery cables don't mix. Thank God for "Don't ask, don't tell", huh?!

    Life onboard is great though it can get a little boring at times.

    Tweakabeakastan is a funny little country. Maybe we could visit Sam's parents sometime. They have some of the largest seagulls I've ever seen though!
