“If you don’t take care of your feet, you will fail OCS.”
Coming from one of the nation’s most elite senior military colleges I had heard of the necessity of proper foot maintenance, however, I never fully grasped the importance of it until that moment at OCS. The doc, who was giving the brief, went on to tell of the wide array of injuries associated with inadequate foot care. Ultimately though, the take-away was this:
Hotspots lead to blisters, blisters lead to infection, and INFECTION WILL SEND YOU HOME.
You might think a small cut or a tiny exposed area of skin from a blister won’t bother you or you’ll just “Tough It Out”. Unfortunately, you’re wrong. If you don’t fortify your feet with good gear, you’ll be enjoying the lovely woods of Quantico and the company of the sergeant instructors again the following year.
