The moderate color blindness is allowed with a waiver which is fairly easy to get. YOu can get waivers for surgery, etc, as long as you can show you are fit to perform required duties.

I took the color blindness test and only couldn't read the 2nd and 3rd on the left. All the others I could see fine, which kind of muddled up my score for the test, since it is very specific.

I could just imagine being a cop patrolling around in my Ford Crown Vic and see a car fly by only to have to radio it in as blue.... or purple.

Well maybe if you can get a waiver in the military you can be an MP.

Well, work out, try to work on doing crazy amounts of things real fast (timed objectives sucked, we almost always failed) and remember to bring extra razors, you run out of that qick. Bring a lot more socks and underwear too, physical fitness wears those down quick.

I doubt they provide a boresnake, all I got in my (Canadian) basic was an issue cleaning kit with a rod and patches. A boresnake in no way replaces these things, but it's damned handy to run through your barrel before morning inspection when it's spent all night sweating carbon from the CLP you used to clean.

That said, if your Sgt is any damned good he will find carbon no matter how well you clean your weapon - he showed me after the course how he'd run his finger along the inside of the ejection port and get some every time.
