What do they put inside these hefty-looking bags?
Do you speak of these? http://www.usafa.af.mil/cadetFocus/cadetPhotos/2012/inprocessing/pages/ARM_2757.htm
I'm not sure if that's what he was talking about, but I would like to know what's in them.
everything you will ever need!!!
But seriously whats in them I'm not wating till 2014 or is it 2015 to find out!
When does c/o 2018 enter the academy its 2014 right because thats when I graduate right??? AHHH! So Confused!!!!
I'm going to venture a guess but I'm guessing they have some of these: http://www.usafa.af.mil/cadetFocus/cadetPhotos/2012/inprocessing/pages/ARM_2742.htm
and probably some of these: http://www.usafa.af.mil/cadetFocus/cadetPhotos/2012/inprocessing/pages/ARM_2743.htm
And this: http://www.usafa.af.mil/cadetFocus/cadetPhotos/2012/inprocessing/pages/MAK0085.htm
oh, maybe this PT gear: http://www.usafa.af.mil/cadetFocus/cadetPhotos/2012/inprocessing/pages/RMB0659.htm
Hmmm, so probably that and others... Any current cadets wanna help us out here?
You seriously get everything you will need. Soap, shampoo, shoes, uniforms, sewing kits, underwear, socks, towels, pillows, blankets, toothbrush, nail clippers, toe brushes, sunscrean, book ends, coat hangers, books, pens, hand sanitizer...
seriously, you get EVERYTHING!!!
Great post thanks for the all of the photos....
well...you also need a shaver. but thats from home right?
Can you bring an electric shaver to use?
yeah you can. i asked hornet that a while back i think. i'm not sure how we'd get to keep it with us tho cuz we turn in our backpacks for all of BCT
they basically let you keep what's essential... razors, blades, toothbrush... sometimes even deodorant or toothpaste. sometimes.
and they still let you buy all that essential stuff at the c-store when you get there. Honestly, bring a razor, and paperwork. that's it. they give you everything else. oh, and if you're religious, during the Friday and Sunday church services, most "church leaders" will be handing out small military sized scriptures. I wish I would've known that, and I wouldn't have took mine!
Well, those particular bags, if I remember that particular trip correctly, most probably containt one or two pairs of boots, some low quarters (black shoes), three sets of ABUs, and maybe some blues shirts... and you may not think boots and ABUs would be that heavy, but WOW
lol. You can't carry it by yourself in your left hand! especially going across the T'zo! but usafa10s and I have a good squad, so we helped carry each other's bags! that's one of the important things, is to learn how to help your classmates when there is practically nothing you can do.
oh, and those green bags in the original picture are TINY compared to the GIANT tan ones we had later
yea seriously, i hated not being able to carry it over my shoulder lol
I think some of the guys did have electrics at BCT, but mine (lazy!) dry shaved with a regular razor. Santa Claus brought them their own electrics, so now they can dry shave with those.
I keep on seeing the different colored hats on each class's photo page. Will 2013 be silver because 2009 is silver too?
Yup, 2013 will all be grey.
