Well, I'm finishing up 1st Reg right now; just got out of the woods recently. Granted, I don't exactly have the time to search the forums, I started this thread for cadets and parents to ask any questions you may have. (Disclaimer: due to limited/crappy cell reception [Straighttalk - so if you have it, enjoy all the data in the world without any phone service, all the while on 4G LTE ...], plus only having phones 30 min from lights out) So my responses will probably be limited due to how long it takes to load pages and all. I'll try to answer as many questions, but I will be focusing on important questions first. Couple of notes: if you wear contacts be sure to bring some prescription glasses. Contacts are a no go in the field, and especially not in the gas chamber. Field time has been extended from 12 to 14 days (I believe this starts with 4th Reg). If you draw supplies from CIF - specifically sets of ACUs - if you can avoid wearing them, do so. When you get back from the field there is literally 2 days dedicated to cleaning all your gear. With ACUs, the big thing to be careful about are ink stains. They will not accept those, which means either you trade it in for one of your good sets, or you pay for them. I have ink stains on some of my uniforms, even though a pen was nowhere near the stain. Once I get back home I can give more detailed answers and a somewhat detailed recap of what happened. But until then, expect short choppy answers. So with that being said, what questions do you have?
