Clothing Issue Flying Tigers
Flying Tigers finally made their way through the Cadet Clothing Issue where uniforms are issued throughout BCT-1 where they will receive essentials for uniforms they will be required to wear during their four years at the Academy.
Cadet Clothing Issue is where all Basic Cadets get various uniforms issued as well as their green duffel bag. And after Basic Training they will receive the traditional blue trunk. Flying Tigers was issued such items as the Blues Uniform shirts, white gloves, winter jacket, and the various hats they wear with each uniform.
Even though this may not be the most interesting part of BCT, it is a valuable one and a well fitting uniform will be greatly appreciated in the years to come.
Each Basic Cadet went to various stations to get measured, try on blues shirts, gloves, and hats to determine the correct size. While trying on their blues shirts they were asked to salute to check for shoulder comfort and easy of movement.
When trying on the hats, they put two fingers width above the brow to determine where the hat should fit on their head for correct size. There are Cadre there to help them find the correct size. No one wants an incorrect fitting hat for four years!
