    I've read somewhere on the forum that cameras are permitted on R-Day and will not be confiscated during Beast. Is this true? Will cadre disapprove of cadet candidates bringing a camera during CBT? I will obviously not use the camera until I know how my cadre operate, and will only take photographs sparingly. It would be nice to take pictures to look back on after Beast.

    Thanks

    In my Beast company, we were not allowed to have cameras. I had one packed, but had to stow it away in my civilian bag on R-Day. Speaking with buddies in other companies, it seemed like it was the same for them too.

    Usually your cadre will take pictures though, and email them out after Beast; plus there will be hundreds of Beast pictures posted online between BG Rapp's facebook, the WP flickr stream, and random pictures that get sent around the parent distro. :thumb:

    When does the Commandant leave? I heard something about him leaving soon?

    I know we're supposed to bring one bag for our belongings on R-Day, so are we provided a bag to store things in until A-Day? Or do we pack those things in a separate bag we need to bring?

    We don't know yet. He was on the most recently-released promotion list for O-8.

    Your civilian bag is what you will store your civilianan travelling clothes, cellphones, etc. It will be pretty much empty in storage because you will have emptied all of the stuff you brought for USMA into your flight bag.
