Set your new Second Lieutenant up for success at The Basic School!
Reader and Marine Spouse Jill S had some great ideas for gifts that will definitely come in handy at TBS:
I got my husband a JetBoil stove and a Leatherman to use at TBS.
My husband also suggested some other practical things to use at TBS.
For example: a Kindle or other reading device (to read all the books and military pubs recommended), good mapping gear (a set of superfine maps pens, a better protractor like Ranger Joes’ protractor, a circular one with a string running thru it), a coyote-brown (USMC Tan) colored admin pouch carrier for FLC (LBV), also Danner RAT boots (temperate or jungle) and you can’t forget about that Mameluke sword!
