So I’ve been in the military over a year now and still get the “you’re new” or “you’re going to hate it soon” comments constantly so when I tell anyone I bought my own gear they get hysterical asking “why” because everything is issued. Well 90% of the shit I was issued belongs in a dumpster. I enjoy being in the military and have zero complaints. I’ve never had so much time off and a 4 day weekend nearly every month doesn’t exist in the civilian world.. I take pride in what I do and love having my own gear that I know won’t fall apart. What do you all think?
