FEMALE ARMY PACKING LIST
I’m leaving tomorrow morning for BCT at Ft Jackson. This is everything I’m packing. First is the bag — my old Puma soccer bag firsts everything perfectly. I’m bringing 15 self addressed envelopes to home.
-two books of stamps
-huge handful of pens and envelopes
-3 disposable razors (non-scented)
-10 crew length socks, white, no logos
-feminine hygiene products— box of tampons and pack of panty liners
-notebook for the paper to write letters on
-80 page memo book (smallest at store)
-6 black and 6 white granny panties
-8 white sports bras, no big, visible logos
-1 white towel
-1 white wash cloth
-travel kit with travel sized shampoo, condition, and hair gel to keep my fly-aways down
-4 pre-made sock buns
-2 travel size Golds Bond foot powder
-travel size toothpaste
-toothbrush case and toothbrush (clear)
- 2 soap holders (clear)
-1 bar of unscented soap
-1 travel size scent less deodorant
-silver nail clippers without the swivel thing that cleans under your nails (considered a weapon)
-1 thing of lotion, lightly scented
-bobby pins and hair ties (blonde hair color)
-1 combo lock (additional bought at PX)
-2 packs of baby wipes (optional and can be bought at PX, I think)
-500 Q-Tips for cleaning my M-16
-1 white, un-padded bra for class A and B uniforms
-1 pair of ALL black shower shoes (flip flops with no logos)
I labeled everything with my last name or initials and my last four of my SSN so no one would steal anything (I hope).
Tomorrow I’m wearing a pair of jeans without holes, my black army recruiter shirt, and black tennis shoes. I’m also wearing my hair in a bun.
When I come back I’ll let y’all know what I did and didn’t need from this list. I should be visiting the PX Tuesday, my first full day there.
