I would take all the gear and put it on at the gate, but it is the boots that get me......maybe I could have the guards put them on for me
When I was in the Army, I was stationed in Germany and then came back to Kansas. I honestly hated being stationed in the States. Overseas, you did your job, worked hard, played hard.
In the States you worried about shoes looking good , clothes pressed just right etc. The actual job was secondary to all of the other bs.....
I reenlisted just to get out of there and back to Europe.
sorry, my rant for the day, I just do not believe a long sleeve shirt is going to help me much if I go down, nor the boots. Actually, if I go down, I am broken and there isn't a whole lot going to help me short of an ambulance.
