You yourself have claimed that your level of self-discipline and attention to detail are low, and that your "previous experience" is what really matters.  That's all the information I need right there.

You obviously don't have a clue as to what military life entails, and as it has been previously stated, you are in for a shock.  But whatever, carry on your merry way.  Your only cheating yourself.

1 1/2 years Infantry reserve.
6 years US Navy.

But that's cool, know-it-all's make me laugh.  Hard. ;D

Let me guess... you were in the SEALS, weren't you?

Uh, where did I claim that? No where. No where did I claim my self-discipline and attention to detail was low. If my attention to detail were really that low, I wouldn't have noticed all the stuff I've been noticing, now would I?

You obviously don't have a clue as to what military life entails.

How would you know? What else do you know about me, Silvia Browne?

Nope.  Med tech.

I worked in Great Lakes, Ill for about 4 1/2 years (US Navy Basic Training facility- real bootcamp, not the Mickey Mouse crap that is St Jean).  My final year and a half was spent in Keflavik, Iceland (NAS Kevflavik).

Have you taken a good look at some of the drooling retards they let carry a gun?

Maybe you should look at what is allowed in the US Army........

Folding ice & rain pants 30x30 help
« Reply #58 on: December 10, 2017, 10:27:30 »
Anyone have any tips on how to get them just right? Our section leaders are very "hands on" when our shirts, jackets or pants aren't balls on accurate.

Thanks

Fold them again and again until you get the measurement right.  Talk with your course mates, if someone is good at folding to the required measurement get them to do yours, etc.

Also, you don’t have to come here to ask for help regarding BMQ(you don’t need the internets help for it). Speak with your peers on course and staff.

Also, posting your name(especially while on course), that’s a bold move Cotton, let’s see how this plays out.

What week are you in? You must still be pretty early on in your course, because switching off jobs becomes key during course. Ie. your FTP is really good at boots, but sucks at ironing. You’re good at ironing but suck at boots, so you switch off jobs. The platoon gets better and better each inspection because people are sharing their strengths with each other. In my section I became the ironer, not because no one else could do it, but because I was really good at it. In turn, another person did my boots, not because I couldn’t and not because I didn’t learn, but because while I was busy getting something as near perfect as it could be for others, someone was doing the same for me. EVERYone on pl learns how to fold and iron and shine boots as clean and etc etc etc, but as with everything in life there are those who can do certain things extremely well. Being on pl means working together. It isn’t every man for himself trying to get everything done all by himself.

And I agree that coming here while on course to get advice on how to do things is the wrong move. I joined this site before course, and while on pl, not ONCE did I think about getting advice here. Get off your phones and start working together.
