So from what I have read on the boards is: 1. Cadets want to eat and sleep. 2.Cadets do not want to set foot in any store, so do shopping prior to picking up cadet. (Toiletries, school supplies, etc) My questions: 1. Are Cadets allowed blankets and pillows aside from what they are issued? 2. Is there a standard watch (wristwatch) to purchase, or is it personal preference? 3. Is there anything to do locally that would be considered rejuvenating or fun? (Hot springs, tours, great restaurants--) Thank you!
