Your Questions Answered

For a light treat and relaxation break for me, I'm choosing my next post to be answering the questions of some of the google searches that lead individuals here. Some serious, some silly, I will answer as many as I can until I get tired of it.

Can active duty personnel grow beards on leave?

Why yes, yes they can, and frequently do just to shock everyone. Congratulations, gentlemen, it works. Now please shave that facial...not

Why is it important to show up in the correct uniform for duty?

Well, hopefully my earlier post on the uniform regulations applying to protesting helped you. However, it is important to show up in the correct uniform because it's one of the easiest things to do in the Army. It's even easier than showing up at the correct time, because your clothes are already picked out for you, like your mother did when you were five. If you show yourself to be incapable of wearing the clothing already picked out for you, it is like wearing a big red sign saying "I Am Your Friendly Platoon Idiot". Unless more than three people are all also wearing the wrong uniform, in which case it's a communications issue.

Do women serve in active battle in military?

Well, the short answer is 'yes'. Women are not supposed to be assigned to combat MOSes, but in a world without real "front lines", yes, women are often in active battle and active combat zones, whether for better or worse.

Can you sell DoD Sapi plates?

I have no idea what led you to my blog, guy, but you sound intensely dishonest. Give your stuff back to the nice government so someone else can have some equipment, dude.

What did the patriot soldiers eat?

Whatever they could get, most likely.

While underway, the Submarine force is allowed to rock the beard. This is the only cool thing about submarine duty, ever. My one buddy looked like Teen Wolf.

"Can you sell DoD Sapi plates?" No, but you sure can sell MRE's!
