JOURNAL ENTRY 3
The drills here are the worst. We stab dummies we shot at targets and worst of all when we get in trouble we run until we puke or run enough miles The camp is in a hilly place so running is the worst thing ever. And marching is so hard we have to go up and down hills and stay in line. This one guy fell and I saw him crawling the path without a shirt!!!!!!! I can't wait to see you and get out of here.
From, Homer J. Simpson
Jeremiah Interview Questions: JOURNAL ENTRY 4
I decided to join the army because I wanted to join my brother fighting for the confederacy. I think that my mom will be OK on her own with her sickness. It is not that serious
I am happy about joining the army and helping out the cause for the confederacy. I will try to win this for my dad and my sick mom.
I wish that I would have given my mom more care before I left to fight. I just hope she is OK and is feeling better.

There have been some nasty illnesses going around camp. I saw this one guy with pink eye a whole lot of quickstepping. Even our food has illnesses our coffee out crackers have so many bugs you would not believe. I hate it here the only good food is the goober peas.

Being home is the best thing in the world I missed my bed and actual good food. I missed my family more than ever. I have only been gone for 3 months but it felt like a life time. Every day at camp I thought of my wife and kids
