I just thought that as all of the concerns about low-quarters, boots, socks, and the like perhaps it would be good to reflect on the real mission; to serve the United States in the Army and consider all which that may entail. You see, May 26th, 2011 1st Lt Runkle (USMA class of 2009) was KIA in Afganistan. He was a fine young man, in the top 10 of his class, anyway, I hope that as the class of 2015 enjoys the honors and excitement of R-day, CBT, and A-day they will also be grounded in the commitment which this vocation entails. PS I believe that Scoutpilot has submitted some valuable posts along/similar to this subject line last year(?) which are definitely worth a read.
