Exclamation No Go

Dont wear contacts to basic!!!!!!!!
if your wearing contacts and you go threw the gas chamber your not going to be feeling to good!

The Drill Sgt told us that they would find out if we were wearing them and warned us about the chamber and the contacts "melting" to your eyes. So of course most of us thought that this was a funny way to get us not to wear them.

WRONG
2 people ended up getting out on medical discharges. The contacts didn't melt to their eyes but what ever they did, it wasn't pretty... one guy ended up getting some vison back but the other one is as blind as a bat.

The gas is only CS gas. gas used in riots to control the crowds so how this really makes sence is beyond me.. CS gas just makes you cough, get a massive runny nose, tear up, and if you have like some small scratchs on your skin it will make them sting a little.

Thinking about it doesn't make much sence since the gas is used to keep riots under control. so why would contacts have such a bad effect is beyond me. I just know what i saw. so if you do end up wearing contacts to basic, take them out wellllll before you hit the chambers!
