    Take nothing other than what is on the list, the less you have the better.

    On a side note, no matter how sneaky you may think you are, or how terrific a hiding place you might think you have, I guarantee you your DSs will find it.

    All of the above advice is dead on. Good luck! :wavey:

    In OBC for med/dental/jags/other bitches like that, I hear that you can basically bring whatever as long as it is relatively small. You get a lockable drawer or footlocker and apprently everyone brings their laptop. :hsugh:

    Whats sad is that OBC used to be even easier in the ~ early 90s, but then the services got pissed that all these docs had no clue of military discipline or basic skills and came in as O3.

    actually, i took shit on the list and they told me to send it home. you'll get issued everything you'll need. i wouldn't take anything.

    EDIT: i got to keep my sneakers. take your pair as long as they're not too outrageous looking. that way you'll have a broken in pair.

    They will make you purchase a pair of running shoes out of your smartcard $$.

    I would just bring as little as you can possibly get away with. You will be running with whatever you bring, and it's going to get tossed around and scattered - and then you're going to have to pick it all up as fast as you can, stuff it all back in your bags, do the same with your uniform issue, and run as fast as you can with it all.

    You won't be fast enough, and then you're going to have to push the earth away from the sun in the front leaning rest position until you save the planet. True story. :wtc:

    Grab a cheap watch from Walmart. You will get to keep it tucked away and use it if your in a position of leadership at basic. Other than that, bring the clothes on your back and that's it.
