Cdt. Wo.Pongo said:I don't really take time to read every respond, so if this has already been said sorry. If you have a red sash and/or a white belt be prepared to take them off. My advice is to leave them at home and ask your commanding officer for a green belt. Also never tell somebody that you aren't going to eat, they will force you to eat and watch you for the rest of the day. So eat every meal and freshie, it gives you energy that you loose while training. I think the most important advice I will be able to give you is have fun, enjoy your stay, make lots of friends, and do you best. If you do all of that, summer camp should be splendid.

You should probably specify Course Cadets with the Sash remark, anyone affiliated with an Infantry unit holding the rank of Sgt. or above is allowed to wear it depending on dress of the day and you can't forget the mess dinner, at least thats how it is in Vernon
and why would you not eat? I know every once and a while the mess comes up with some bogus stuff, and the deep fried hashbrowns start to suck after awhile, but there is enough there for even the pickiest of eaters, I can remember on some hot days where all I ate was watermelon, cantaloupe and few other things from the salad bar, you can't do that at home
also, do not drink more than 3 to 5 cups of freshie (especially the orange) because otherwise you feel woozy, Your best friends in the world are Storesmans / CQ's, anyone working in Stores and Cooks, especially the cooks
