Do I have a treat for you today! I was rummaging around my home office, looking for a binder to organize my Air Force documents for UTA weekends, when I found the original binder I purchased and took to BMT. [Reminder:
I’ll go ahead and list these items here, since I know the text is a little faded. The valuables go inside of the security drawer in the narrow tray, which is locked at all times. You’ll wear the key to this lock around your neck at all times (including when showering) and you are never to have it outside of your clothing. You and your fellow trainees will yell “Key Check!” if you see someone’s key out and you need to remind them to put it away. Don’t let the MTIs catch you with your key out. Authorized items will go in your security drawer as well, in the back half (or underneath your towel) where you have personal space. Unauthorized items are confiscated. Some may remain in your civilian luggage, others are confiscated and not returned (like food or my unmarked travel bottles of body wash).
Any important paperwork
Personal hygiene items
Stationery (letter writing material)
Motivational reading material (Religious books)
Small photo albums (remove all pictures for inspection)
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
