    i needed new flight boots and gloves, and not only got both, but got them (and nicer boots than expected) within hours of my request :)

    quite a pleasant experience, although my request for other things was turned down :hs:

    Why can't my warehouse stock that stuff? I'm sick of airplane and vehicle parts.

    running/hiding/living in deep brush for a week or so. the boots got torn up pretty good - i mean, they're fine for work boots but they're cut up so bad they look really unprofessional to wear in uniform. the gloves were actually torn in a few places so they're pretty much unservicable.

    Ah were they some sort of garrison boot? I wore jungle boots and they were good to go.

    all-leather flight boots - no cordura or rip-stop or anything, just straight up leather that got torn to shit from all the branches and stuff out there. again, they're not useless now, just really shitty looking with all the chunks torn out and big rips in the leather, so i got a new pair.

    haha, no it wasn't too bad. the weather was fucking awesome - mid 70s everyday and no rain at all. it could have been much worse.

    in hindsight i should have worn my jump boots - they wouldn't have gotten as fucked up and it would have saved me my flight boots.

    if you bug us enough about something we will eventually do it for you if it's something simple. It's a matter of the unit not having enough funds to order a lot of shit.
