What to write in your letters to basic training


  1. When my brother went through training in the Citadel, this was the verse he and his buddies inscribed on the inside of their rings upon completion. They recited that verse until it became engraved on their hearts and minds. No doubt it helped them through.

    “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:18‬ ‭NASB‬‬

  2. Nicole…I cannot tell how how encouraged I was to see your post with all the Bible verses. My son is going though USAF BMT and is just about finishing WOT 2 …. he is probably overwhelmed and it is comforting to see your posting for some verses I can include in my letter. I thank God for you!!! Bless you!

    1. I’m so glad to hear that these verses might be able to help your son while at training. I wish him the best of luck!
