Ah, the good ol days. In basic back in 87 I never ran in boots we were told too many people got stress fractures in their lower legs from it. However in OCS we did sometimes. We also never had to earn our chow, though I think it should be done.
"The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental." - John Steinbeck
