Ok so I will be the one. Yes, the one who has read the instructions a million times, the one who has been married to a USCGA grad for 30 years and should know the answer and the one who knows well enough if you needed it the military would have issued it to you. Understanding all the above - I am still so confused. My DD would like to bring an OTC face wash as it helps control her blemishes and dry skin (stop rolling your eyes). I have read in the PTR- on this site and on the BLB FB page that it is ok to bring these type of things. Where I am confused is that you can put them in your "back pack" that will then be taken away from you and you will not see it again for several weeks. How do we pack? I understand the cell phone and all that goes away but what about personal hygiene items? The PRT mentions you can bring extra socks, undies, bras and athletic shoes. Now, once yall are done laughing and mumbling under your breath "really, really that is what she is worried about" "no time for special face wash when your shower time is like 2 mins" I look forward to your "KIND" remarks and "Help". Oh and this is where I am glad we do not use our real names or Our P2B name.
