I heard that some are having problems with getting their laundry back. Is it just delayed due to delivery backed up?
Good Point. This can turn into a learning experience for the Cadet. The challenge to learn how to improvise; for some the first time to ever wash their own clothes in a sink/shower(kind of laughing about that) and to step up to solve a problem. Guessing my real concern is, after spending X amount $$$, checking to see if the reason is lost, destroyed and therefore don't expect it back. Hoping all will eventually get the delayed/missing laundry back.This happens. The reason doesn't really matter. What matters is how the cadet handles the problem. Ideally the cadet will use it as a learning experience and won't be overly bothered by this as this kind of problem happens all the time in the army. Best to learn flexibility now.
Just use the laundry service in town. It is a bit pricey but they do deliver better results. If there is a problem that money can solve then that isn't a problem, right?My son does his own laundry because the laundry service has lost too much. He had to use the laundry service at Buckner a couple weeks ago though, and prayed it would all come back. His prayers fell on deaf ears though. He was ticked off big time. He said he has never used laundry service without missing several items.
Mine uses the machines in the barracks also. A great option except they have to pay for it. I didn't know about the laundry service in town - I'll have to mention it. I don't mind paying for it, but paying twice because the USMA service can't get it right is annoying.Many cadets (after beast) choose to do their own laundry in the machines in the barracks. The less domestic ones have it picked up and then dropped off by the place in town.
What is the name of the laundry service in town? Disappointed at something as simple as laundry is/can be disrespected to a/future soldier...but not make the headlines, Does history not say?....something as simple as laundry can make a difference, it's not complex as the popular headlines as to what helps a new soldier. I would rather a new soldier focus more on how to pass/improve on the range to protect him and us than when will I get my laundry in a training situation. Thanks for helping.Just use the laundry service in town. It is a bit pricey but they do deliver better results. If there is a problem that money can solve then that isn't a problem, right?
