With R Day bearing down on us, I figured it would be helpful to begin posting any tips or tricks we may have so that the appointees could benefit. Anything from packing, to rucking, to dealing with cadre. My contribution would be wearing pantyhose ("nylons") underneath your socks whenever rucking and marching. It works to prevent blisters apparently, and my older brother used them for IBLC whenever they would go on long rucks. Ultimately the best thing to do would be to get the proper calluses in place, but if you find yourself needing to wear a pair of boots that you have not had a chance to break in, these could come in handy. Polyprene socks work as well, and some say they work even better due to their moisture wicking capabilities.
