Letters To Dougie

Dougie Hardesty's family business was enrolling in the military. His father did it, his father before that did it, and so did his father. So it wasn't a surprise when he did. But what Dougie didn't know, was that his trainer, Kelly Rose, was one of the best. She was one of the only trainers who went one on one with each of her men. She was tougher than half the men that came through the MEU Ground Combat Element. She never let any man phase her. She never let any one man get into her head. Untilthe tragedy..until Dougie..

6 Months Later

I sat in my empty house, with nothing but the void sound of the television to keep me company.

Ever  since Dougie's funeral I have dropped out of the military and I became an avid alcoholic. The first thing I drank in the morning was alcohol and it was the last thing I drank at night. Alcohol was what I used to help my hangovers and what I used to numb the pain. I received phone calls everyday to join some bullshit support group but I never stay on the line long enough to know any details. 

I did receive something in the mail today. This was the first time in months I had ever been sent anything in the mail. It was a big yellow confidential envelope. On it, in black sharpie, was this:


I know this may be hard for you, but I think now is the right time for you to see this. Do what you want with these letters,but I highly recommend you see them. If you do read them, read them in order.

John Hardesty


Why in the hell would he be writing to me? I opened it, and grabbed what was inside. Four pieces of notebook paper folded in half. Each one had a number written on it in sloppy red ink. I unfolded number one and looked inside.

Dearest Kelly,

This is my first day of training. I am so excited to see you and be able to work with you. I knew since the first time I saw you that I was in love you. I don't care what you say, or what you do, I will do whatever it takes to make you love me back.

With Love,




Holy shit.
