If you are in the Military you know not to miss shaving. I know it's not fun to do it everyday, but as you will find out in your essay, it's important lol.

"Shaving is very very very very very very very very very important, you should do it really really really really really really often, because hair can get very very very very very very long. It's extremely extremely extremely important especially in the armed forces" there you go. if you go off of that you'll get 1000 words no problem

it could've been way worse!...when I was at training somebody hid one of my shoes and when we were awaken by our staff seargeant I had only one shoe...not only did I have to run 3 miles with one shoe but I had to write a 5 thousand page essay on the why " I should make sure no one steals my shit"

Quit whining about your NCO putting Joe Blow in their place for Joes fuck up's. Joe being you. Your in the army from the sounds of it instead of another branch. You got off lucky. Just look up the manual for uniform wear and appearance.

What we did in basic is if u got caught with a little bit of scruff on ur chin your battle buddy had to shave ur face every morning because u obviously arent responsible enough to take the 10 seconds to shave everymorning. but its different in the regular army. now u just get counseling statements which leads to deduction of pay and probable demotion if u get enough article 15's. OP i suggest u get a whiteboard and put it on ur door so u can go over the list of sensitive items and important acti

20 - who said he was in the marines? Platoon Sergeant could be in the Army also. OP - first, thanks for your service! second, shave!!! it's obviously worth the 5 extra minutes in the morning. third, be thankful he didn't run you ass off!

An essay? What ever happened to getting the shit smoked out of you? That's how my unit did it, I don't know anyone who ever had to write an essay. One time I did see two guys give a "class" on shaving where they had to dry shave because they didn't do it.... And then they got the shit smoked out of them... Unless you were off duty, ydi man. AR 670-1.

#168, shut the fuck up. You're an ignorant pig for saying something as awful as that to the people fighting for our freedom. Please, sir, go fuck off and die. I'm shocked your comment hasn't been moderated yet. That's just disgusting. OP, that does suck. You could've gotten it a lot worse, though. As long as you make sure you shave EVERY time you need to (every day if necessary, even), you should be okay. I thank you for your service. :)

76, more like it's possible that you won't get a proper seal on your gas mask if you need it in combat. sure, shit happens but you also look like a shitbag being the one without it. or as a volunteer back home, you'd be sucking in a lot of smoke in a burning building...

I don't see why any one would think this is an FML or even feel sorry for him, this is exactly what he signed up for, it's his job to shave, there's no reason why the punishment should've been worse, the platoon sgt is going easy on him

Thats retarded. In most other militaries I know it's ordered to either be clean shaven or you can bearded, only things like moustaches ain't allowed...so how come the marines don't let you sport a beard..?

12, that's lame. The only punishments for not shaving I've given out have been to moonwalk on base for an hour (McGuire AFB) or something else along those lines. Embarrassment works much better than writing essays or running IMO.
