Navy Brett for one guy from 100 Great monologues. A versatile collection of monologues, duo logs and trio logs for student actors by Rebecca Young Dear Dad, I'm writing this letter because I don't have the guts to tell you on the phone. I knew the words would fly right out of my mouth and I wouldn't make any sense. First off, I want you to know how much I appreciate everything you've always done for me. You've pushed me to be my best. And I know that's why I've been able to achieve so much. You're the voice in my head. Always tells me to keep going, never give up. That's what makes this so hard. I know you're going to be disappointed in me, and I can hardly stand it. But I'm not quitting, Dad. Not really. Because this was never what I wanted. Never. My dream. It's always been yours. Yours and Greg's. You both were made for this. I wasn't. I know. I should have told you this before. Never should have let things go this far. It wasn't fair to you or me, but here's the deal, Dad. I'm leaving the Navy. Not because boot camp got the better of May, but because I didn't give the best of me to boot camp, I know that will be hard for you to understand that I don't love everything about being in the Navy. Thing is, I don't even like any of it. I'm not cut out to be a serviceman. I want to be a veterinarian. They don't have much use for one of those around. They're discharging me on Sunday, not dishonorably or anything, just a voluntary discharge. After a lot of meetings and a lot of counseling, they accept the fact that this was not a match for me or them. I know to You will always seem dishonorable, and I'm sorry for that. I didn't mean toe let you down. I hope that one day you'll be able to forgive me. I know every man in our family has served in the Navy. I guess that's why I felt pressure in the first place. I knew how much you were counting on me to following the family footsteps. Anyway. I'll be flying in Sunday night. I hope you'll be there to pick me up. I'll understand, though, if you don't want to see me Just know that this was probably the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. And I'm sorry to let you down. I love you Hot.
