My son got his phone (which they were told they wouldn't have) and was able to go to his sponsor's for the afternoon today (they had been told they were restricted and no one could go anywhere today). Plus they now don't have a WAMI (inspection) on Wednesday, plus no class (which was planned beforehand) so it sounds like it's pretty much a free day. And he got the discretionary pass last night and went and saw a movie (I'm pretty sure on base somewhere).

Yuppers. No running the strips (actually don't even have to be ON the strips), no greeting, going to Mitch's in PC gear. Almost upper-status.

On the WAMI, we got the MFR for Wednesday and it still has the schedule (3rd and 4th group from 8AM-10AM). Not sure what's up with that...

I wouldn't get too excited though; it's still a Comm Day, so there is discretionary squadron PT

Default benefits of being at rest

dont have to run, allowed to talk, dont have to walk on strips/right side of the hallway, dont have to greet upperclassmen with our squadron phrase. These may not seem like huge things, but they are much better than one may think.

I can imagine, taking a break from those little things seems great from time to time!

Default Thanks everyone for the answer...

And yes those are some wonderful things that most would take for granted. Good for the Class of 2014.

If they beat Oklahoma i think that will signal the beggining of the apocolypse. I hope they at least do better than FSu did last weekend. Go Falcons!
