    Hey for the storage container I went to walmart, its in the automotive section. Just ask or look for trunk locker. The hangers I got at crate & barrell, 12 for 24bux, you can prob just go on the site, but time is limited. Sgt. Crespo said to shy away from cheap metal hangers, he used the dry cleaner ones as an example of cheap. The ones at c&b are thick sturdy and chrome. I had trouble with the running shoes myself, so I called Sgt. Crespo and he told me to get something that is predominately white, and if it had a bit of blue it is ok. I bought a pair of asics nimbus 12's at sports authority. Asics byfar makes some of the best running shoes. Good luck bro, see you the 27th.

        We can cut that crap out before we even head to the academy guys. The quicker we can come together as a group the easier this will be.

            My question was are we there 4 or 5 days a week. Your answer was not an answer to the question. Dont get your feelings hurt, I was not trying to be sarcastic.

                  Sorry if I didn't break it down in simpler terms. We start out in the beginning with 5 days, and the last phase it gets shortened to 4. Simple enough? No feelings hurt here. Next time you have a question Ill make sure to simplify as much as possible.

                    Actually as far as I know that is not correct. The 116th started out with 4 day work weeks, having FRI, SAT and SUN off (return to SPHQ on SUN evening). That didn't work too well so a few weeks ago they reverted back to 5 day weeks. From talking with a Trooper today he said the practical drills were normally 5 days long and it just didn't work out. With that being said all of the 117th and later academies will be 5 day work weeks.

                      Shirts,pants,coat etc should be on a hanger. I got mine military pressed.
                      I asked a Trooper this question today for you and he said that most everyone put all of the other clothes in the footlocker on the first day.

                              I heard they are STILL making phone calls for job offers people. Last night someone was called and asked if they could report Monday. Still have hope if you are waiting to hear something.

                                Thanks a lot for that info, Im still waiting but I have a good idea that my name is close on the list. Does anyone know about how many spots they end up having open after the second week of class?
