Only on Parris Island...

Driving home from church today, I spotted a Dad taking his brand new baby for a walk in the stroller.

In full battle gear with a heavily packed ruck.

You never know when you'll need to pack a ruck (military backpack), so FYI ...... :)

"To pack a ruck:
Be sure the heaviest items are packed closest to your back and weight is
distributed evenly left-to-right. Pack your spare socks and t-shirts in ziplock
bags at the top so they are easily accessible during wellness checks and place
your poncho in the space at the bottom of the ruckframe so its easily accessible
while moving or without removing your pack. When on long movements keep food
consisting of simply carbohydrates (apple sauce, graham crackers, etc) in your
bellows pockets of your BDU's so you can eat while you walk. "
