And he doesn't know if broken-in is better or not?? So, if anyone has a clue, clue me in and I'll pass it along, he's not getting internet right now, otherwise he'd ask himself. Thanks in advance.
Well maam, in my opinion, you really have to get new jump boots for a couple reasons.

First reason being, they're a very personal item, at least they were to me. And I wanted to be the one to put that first shine on them and break them in myself. If he's in Batt, he won't be wearing them very much at all, only with his Class A's couple times a year at most.

Second, if he's in Batt and his NCO's or Spc4's find out he bought 'used' jump boots and didn't shine them himself, he'll get his bags smoked. At least this would be the experience from my leaders there.
Appreciate it, Ranger Cams. We're kinda with you on the "personal item" issue. It's kinda like buying a used mattress; just not our thing!

Right now, he's having to get patches and ribbons spaced-and-placed and I didn't know if he could order these boots through AAFES, or what?

I thank you again, Ranger Cams.
Was this an extreme case of OCD? Editing a post from 2008? lol

Good to see you too, x. I spend more time on Facebook than here, as it seems more people do these days.

I've no responsibility anymore, so I've become pretty much lazy. I've been travelling Europe as often as my pocketbook allows me. My 'little' Ranger is now a fireman and my daughter is caring for big cats, bears and wolves.

How are you doing?
