Terminal Lance #472 “Why We Hate CIF II”
May 16, 2017
As well, they both turn away your shit for totally ridiculous reasons.
CIF gear is always required to be washed and cleaned when turning it back in, which would be fine if their standards weren’t so ridiculous, considering that the gear is designed to be used by people who literally sleep in dirt for a living and wash their assholes with baby wipes because they don’t shower for days at a time.
Of course, these days gear gets replaced with newer, better gear all the time. I turned in an ILBE pack that Marines today no longer use, but was issued brand new from the package. This serves to make the practice of vigorously cleaning your shit even more useless since most of it will be replaced with new gear anyway for the next generation.
In other news, Terminal Lance is back stateside and jet lagged as fuck, but otherwise operational! Stand by for some cool new stuff coming soon!
