Colonel Hawk, SIR!!

I beg to report, SIR!, that we have taken in a new recruit, SIR! Particulars are: Six feet four inches tall, 196 pounds and few shillings over, quite educated and articulate, and the female members of the Regiment seem to find him to be "a hunk." (Sir, I am familiar with military terms and can readily discuss MLRs, beaten zones, pre-planned fires, TOT, close air support, final defensive fires, commissariat, and FUBAR, but I unfamiliar with this last term and report it here because, SIR!, I am certain it will convey meaning to you.) The new recruit's name, SIR!, is Debbie Earl, SIR!, which causing some small confusion among the troops.

Otherwise, SIR! things are going well. The new weapons have arrived and have been issued, as per your orders, SIR! Training, SIR! has been goind quite well indeed, with only three fatalities and seven wounded, SIR! The troops have also received the new rations, SIR! and some are becoming attached to the rations, calling them "cute."

SIR! That is all for now, SIR!!
