    i remember seeing that combat patch on a few of the soldiers on our fob
     
  15. I was pleasantly surprised from the beginning at Basic Training to find the Air Force has terrific food. I had an advantage, because being skinny, I could go back for seconds and none of the civilians making and serving the food would ever give me any flak. And most of the time, I definitely went back. :wiggle:

    When we went to get the issue of our uniforms and equipment, I had about as much as I could possibly stuff in my duffel bag. Having never done weight training and having graduated just months earlier from high school at 6' 2" and only 145 lbs., I was surprised at having to march back to our dorm with such a very heavy bag. I had to make a tremendous effort to do it without losing my unity and compliance with the flight. :rofl:

    My favorite march by far was to the obstacle course and back. I had great fun on all the stops in the course and don't remember having any difficulty.

    It's a distinct possibility that my most favorite day in basic training was when we got to go to a firing range and shoot rifles that were provided. I can't say for sure because my basic training started on August 17, 1978, quite awhile ago. I did pretty good, but we only got one twenty minute round of shooting with no prior trial runs, so I counted my score carefully, but I had to lie about the number of hits in order to pass.

    wat?

    I just remember it not sucking in the slightest. I was always capable of taking it easy and there was always someone making me look good. It was cake and I can't remember ever thinking I wouldn't make it through.

    First of all, you fabricated this quote of me. I didn't make that statement.

    But since you've cornered me on this issue, I would say, yes, I did love most every part of bootcamp. It was like going to summer camp but far more special and exhilarating. I've had many dreams at night over the years of going back to basic training and regaining that specialness again.

    You don't think I understand what? Let us know what your great wisdom is. LOL

    Did you look at the first post? Reference the part about the photos requiring explanation?
     
  24. Yes. What's your point?
