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 *** 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.
