Who here has been to Bridgeport? I just got back from 2 weeks of annual training there. Did not get a shower until we came back home. My field cammies required me to wash them twice in the washer to get rid of the odor .
During the first week, the Marine Corps decided not to bring us porto potties so they gave us these "quick relief" bags which consisted of a small bag, big bag, toilet paper, and moist towel. First time in my life that I took a shit in a black bag. Haha. It's hard to keep that shit wrapped around your ass and even harder to prevent the bag from slipping after you've dropped a deuce in it. Funny thing is, when we passed by the camp site to lower base camp to go home, there were porto potties sitting there. Figures...
We setup a patrol base next to a creek and stayed there for the second week. Most mornings I woke up shaking. I had all my warming layers on and it was still cold. Come to find out it was 19 degrees!
Some good ass training up there for sure.
Oh yeah, fuck that place!
