Not really, it's just been five or six years since the last shearing. Wife is horrified. Will work for ball caps. Coif to return at average rate of 0.5 inches per month.

I remember getting a haircut like that…Fort Jackson. Cost me $2.00. Took 13 seconds. Had to pay $4.00 every seven days to ‘maintain my military appearance’.

Never again. It has not gotten hot enough.

It would not have so bad, except I had to pay for it. Any way, call me a product of the 60s and 70s, but never again.

A lot of things changed from the day that “Happiness was Fort Hood in my rear view mirror”. To this day I hate hats. I hate spam.

But then, some things never change. I still carry stuff in my left hand (so I could salute with my right). I still make up a bed with mathematical precision.

Those were the days.

Who pays?? Been using a Panasonic men’s beard trimmer over the sink for over 20 years! First time, used it the wrong way and before I knew it, back of my head looked like Mike’s. Had to do the rest to match. Not a good look for a female though. Wore caps for a month. Grew back in great condtion though.

When you are a guest of Uncle Sam at an esteemed location such as Ft Jackson, you have to pay for them, whether yu need them or not. We had one guy show up at basic training who had shaved his head. He still had to go to the barber with us, sit in the chair, and pay them. The first four times they did not even break out the clipers.

My favorite was the guy in garrison who thought he knew how to give a high and tight and totally messed up everyones head. Needless to say the DS didnt find it as amusing.

Our platoon DS’ tried to get our platoon the ‘H&T’, but our company CO didn’t go for it, nor did the 1SG.

Oh, the days at Jackson. There are places that I pushed the ground at least a foot deeper. Oh how I longed for the day that I could yell in a crowded dining hall, “HEY! HEY YOU” YEAH, YOU! YOU IN THE GREEN! GET DOWN! BEAT YOUR FACE!” Got my chance at Ft Sam and Ft Meade. Oh the memories.

We only “earned” our high and tights on graduation day at Benning. And I was at Ft. Sam too. Its a small Army. Wre you a medic?
