    I have daily wear contacts and I'm wondering if I'll be able to wear them at the academy. I know cadets have to wear bcgs during field training, but I'm not sure when or if contacts can be worn.
    Thanks

    As soon as BCT is over you will be allowed to wear your contacts.

    Yes, BCG's (Birth Control Glasses). Trust me; if you are wearing them, there is no way in the world any girl or guy would be attracted to a person wearing them. Hence, the perfect birth control. I have to admit however, that if you normally wear glasses, you definitely will want the BCG. You can beat the hell out of them and they are almost indestructible. And you definitely will get bounced around a lot in basic. Beats the hell out of breaking a $300 pair of ultra thin transition glasses. later... mike....
