Sick! Skipping showers in Boot Camp? Just give up now if that's your biggest obstacle. It's not a big deal. Get over it!!
Hygiene is very important. You're being taught military time. Take Your Shower! Avoid fungal infections.
Yes, it is a big deal, but when I went through boot camp you could get away with using baby wipes if a shower wasn't available. Of course it doesn't replace a shower by any means, so I would highly recommend taking one whenever you can.
Do you think it's a big deal to fart in an elevator full of people?
yeah i do who the hell wants to smell your *** stink
yeah I don't really know why but they sort of have a thing for clean and orderliness in any militarized environment.... dunno what's up with that
Times may have changed from when my sister's fiance went, but you don't have a choice of bathing. You can get reprimanded for looking dirty, unkempt, and smelling funky. Also you have to be cleanly shaved, I believe. Lastly, you're going to want to take a shower, believe me.
IF they let you........ it just takes one person to complain about your smell and you are in trouble --trust me it happened to my oldest son once.
