I know that during West Point combat training excersices you have to where the required BCGs that they issue you. But after the initial summer training can you wear contacts or your civilian eyewear during classes? I was looking at the 2009 CBT photos on USMA's website and I saw cadets wearing shooting glasses while they shot. Is it possible (either while at West Point or when you actually enter the Army after graduation) to get perscription shooting glasses for use on the range/during combat situations? I beleive I read somewhere that contacts are not allowed while out in the field, so can a soldier wear perscription sunglasses or shooting glasses instead of the God-awful BCGs? Just wondering as it is something that bugs me about USMA. The training and rigor I can do without complaint, but those BCGs just irritate me. Call me crazy.
