I just recently graduated from boot camp in Great Lakes IL. The experience was hardening and maturing but at other times amusing. So the other day I was thinking about all of the things not to do that others or myself done while in boot. #1 Just because they are wearing khakis does not mean they are a Chief. #2 Sleeping in the stalls while it may effective, it is not advised. #3 DO NOT LOCK YOUR KNEES!!!!!! #4 When you pass out from locking your knees and knock a tooth out do not put it in your pocket, that is considered gear adrift. #5 Never call the LCPO a Petty Officer unless you want to die. #6 If the Petty Officer walks into the head during holiday routine and you are bare ass naked and dripping wet from the shower you just took do not pop to attention, you just look dumb. #7 The gas chamber sucks, it sucks even worse when you lie and say you don't have pneumonia. #8 Try not to stay up past taps..... so good night. Add your humorous mistakes or the mistakes of others during your boot.
