    Does anybody know if knee braces will be allowed at BCT?

    Highly unlikely.

    Edit -- what kind of knee brace? First thing I thought was: ACL tear/recovery?

    No, no tears or anything like that. Just heard that tendonitis and knee problems were common so I was wondering whether or not I could wear them as a preventive measure.

    I have two cadets that went through Basic, and ended up with some knee problems.

    I will contact them tomorrow and find out if they were allowed to wear a knee brace

    My DD sprained her ankle during 2nd BCT. They put her in an ankle brace.

    I just don't know if they will allow a brace if it isn't prescribed by the clinic.
