Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I still have a pair of black leather boots with a white dot on the upper back part from basic.
IIRC the dot was for odd calendar days.

I don't remember being issued a second pair of jungle boots, only replacements when needed.

I knew that later the Army required trainees to code their boots with a dot or number so that the drill sergeant could mother hen the trainees and force them to switch boots.

I still do that to this day. I have two pair of work boots and two pair of sneakers and cowboy boots. I have several pairs of dress shoes. I never wear the same pair of shoes/boots two days in a row. Shoes last longer that way as well.
