    I was wondering if I can bring my contact lenses to bootcamp.  I wear glasses but contact lenses will be alot more convenient for me. My recruiter advised me to bring my contact lenses in case along with the prescription but I read that we're not allowed to wear contacts during basic training. Can someone elaborate for me?

    Thanks

    Correct. You're not allowed to wear your contacts at boot camp. In fact, when you get there, once you go to medical(pretty much your first week is Medical Week, everyone is there), if you're prescribed glasses, you HAVE to wear them(with porthole straps). It's "doctor's orders" and you must follow all orders.

    I actually got in trouble once for not wearing them. I knew we were about to get I.T.'d so I took them off. Got an R.O.C. for it.

    I wore mine until we got our glasses. Was a couple weeks. Wasn't a big deal, I don't think my CCs really thought anything of it until.i asked for goggles during our swim test.
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.
