Iam going to BCT in San Diego on Sept. 17, and had a couple questions to ask before I go
1) I have flat feet, should I buy my own running shoes? How are the running shoes that they supply?
2) I get major razor burn when I shave and use a ton of aloe lotion afterwards.........can I buy lotion at BCT?(or am I supposed to tough it out without it?)
Any other pointers to make it thru BCT
Take your own running shoes. If you truly have flat feet you are medically disqualified for enlistment so I assume if you passed the medical exam at MEPS then you don't have "flat feet" by the medical definition. You can buy just about anything you need at the recruit store. I suggest a good pair of insoles for your boots. You will wear them alot more than running shoes.
