Clothing Issue Barbarians
Even though this may not be the most interesting part of BCT, it is a valuable one and a well fitting uniform will be greatly appreciated in the years to come.
All squadrons will being going through Uniform Issue throughout BCT 1 where they will receive essentials for uniforms they'll wear in the future, such as medium weight winter jacket, blues uniform, gloves and caps. It was Barbarians turn this afternoon for Clothing Uniform Issue.
Each Basic Cadet went to various stations to get measured, try on blues shirts, gloves, and hats to determine the correct size. While trying on their blues shirts they were asked to salute to check for shoulder comfort and easy of movement.
When trying on the hats, they put two fingers width above the brow to determine where the hat should fit on their head for correct size. There are Cadre there to help them find the correct size-no one wants an incorrect fitting hat for four years!
*** WebGuy would like to take this opportunity in the blog to explain how our coverage works. WebGuy has the priviledge of photographing the USAFA cadets and we have to follow USAFA rules and guidelines. What this means is that we cannot cover every event that takes place at USAFA or during BCT. During BCT there are events such as getting their ID badges, Security Clearance Lab, First Aid Training and Classroom learning. WebGuy does not photograph these events as we do not want to be a distraction to them or the leaders leading these courses.
Each of the eight squadrons have a different daily schedule. All of them will do the same events but on different days and times. This is why WebGuy coverage most likely will not have all squadrons photographed each day. And as previously stated, the schedule can and will change and we don't always get notified of these changes. We will cover the main events that we are allowed to do and by the end of BCT, the number of photos for each squadron should be fairly even. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate our way through another BCT!
