m6medic1 wrote:Hello, I was wondering that when going through airborne and rip do you have to wear BCGs or can you wear normal glasses if they are compatible with regulation. Reason is when i got to abn I will have been in almost two years and I threw out my BCGs right after basic. Also, I have around 20/800 vision so not wearing them is not an option. Thanks in advance Rangers.

In RIP you can wear any military issued glasses.

You'll look like a tool, but they are tough to break.

No one is grading you on your looks and besides, you won't cry when they get lost or broken.

I don't know how it is now a days, but you used to be able to easily get sweet lovin if you were wearing them. 8)

Rangers, I apologize for veering into your lane and ask for your forgiveness but found I could not help myself from posting that I have always found a man wearing those thick framed glasses to be quite sexy, that is all. I'll go bake some cookies now. Thanks, Jenny

Really????? :shock:
