At one time or total? Because there is no way on earth I could tell you how many hours I've put into polishing things military and civilian related.

Most recently I put oh... I dunno must have been 4.5 straight hours wait no, make that 6 if you count stripping 'em first, into my new low-quarters, but that was several months ago... now they only need the 10 min spit-shine!

If you count rust removing I've spent a couple of hours on a particulary large sword.

>10 minutes for a brush shine and maybe 15-20 for a spitshine. It depends on the event.

as a punishment tour...

I had to polish all of the dormitory door brass kick plates in my basic military training squadrons building at lackland..started on a saturday morning at 0800 hours and ended at 2200 hours that night...lets say 12 hours of non-stop brasso banging fun. (Lunch and Dinner were allowed...thank God)

Of course...they had to have a T.I. watch me...so we were both punished...

A real man must always keep hiself and his environment superclean. Those stories about real men wallowing in the mud are just crap.
