    I went to clear yesterday and they told me that I'm missing things! :)!!!

    Apparently,

    1. A 2qt DCU canteen bag must have a strap on the inside, even if it was issued to you without one.

    2. You can't turn in a duffel bag here in it's original condition. The bottom must be spray-painted tan.

    I got to spend about half an hour explaining how I don't owe them SAPI plates that were exchanged in 2007 for ESAPI plates. I guess I did pretty well, considering that the guy behind me owed over $1.5k in gear.

    I'm pretty sure I'll owe a shitload of $$$. I had most of my RFI shit stolen in 2007 along with my black sleeping bag and wet weather gear, which never got replaced because I had a trifecta of supply not giving a shit, my tard NCO not giving me time to file a police report for weeks, and the MP's not closing the police report so i could take it back to supply

    1) why would you accept an incomplete item?
    2) this is common practice.

    1) Most people arriving to their first post for initial issue are too busy being yelled at by some fucktard reception NCO to hurry up. I didn't have time to open all of my shit and check it out.

    2) That's funny, because it came to me without the bottom being sprayed tan.

    I'm assuming the tan is to denote that it's a used seabag.

    I might be in the same boat as the guy who owes $1.5k. My NCO told me that when I get back to the rear, I could apply for combat loss of my items. But I was also told that since my bag was labeled with my name, battalion, but a different company, it is with that company, which is at another location. It was left on the black hawk as it dropped me off at night. I was told that I was wrong to let one person be in charge of unloading all our gear.

    Ouch. You could always try looking up the numbers for the companies that you think your gear might be at. Sometimes an honest person gets a hold of TA-50.

    It's still your responsibility.
    And you may have gotten a new one. You are expected to repaint the bottom. But i agree, overall cif is a frustrating experience, but it depends on the post you go to. Stewart has an excellent one.

    Agreed, the badass part about Stewart's CIF is that they pre-categorize it so it doesn't take more than 10 mins for the turn-in :cool:

    I was having a terrible day when I made this thread, but I cleared it now so it's no longer an issue.

    'Yep, stewart pretty much does all the work for you.

    Here's a tip on CIF though, you know you DO NOT have to accept everything they dish out. Bug net? no thanks, cold weather gloves, no thanks.

    they gave me a nut protector without the ballistic pad in it

    trying to get some paperwork from supply saying such before i do my turn in in 2 weeks. I expect this to fail as my company supply take the term "suck at their job" to an entirely new level

    I've found that NCOs that get jobs like that are usually fucktards to begin with.

    Rather than owe them, I ended up with a ton of extra shit.

    Gear a-drift!
