  • Becoming a CNA is a very rewarding career that take a lot of caring and dedication. CNA programs are also a fantastic way to get your foot in the door in the medical field. I have a lot of respect for all the CNA’s out there.

  • When i was in basic they made us mount our beds, get under the blankets, and kick our feet up in the air, so no matter what you had to remake your bed every morning.

  • i have always tried to find a way to do things. in usn basic/ san diego CA this is what i did:
    i’d go and find who was the last dog watch. find the guy and tell him to wake me up 15 minutes
    before reveille BECAUSE I HAVE TO TAKE MEDICINE!! (not one guy failed to do so in 9 weeks) which gave me 15 more minutes than everyone else.

  • in the showers i noticed everyone chasing their bars of soap…there were no places the park it
    so you had to hold it in your hand…. since the soap has a very bad habit of getting as slippery
    as two eels fornicating in a bucket of snot…. what i did…. everybody saw but none….NONE
    copied — i have no idea why not — made a hole in the middle of the bar, but a string through it
    and tied the end and hung it on my neck….. was it too difficult to think? no. so why no one else? who knows

  • this helps alot….

  • Hahaha you and me both. Let’s just get used to the idea of having our beds thrown out the window.

  • What the heck is a 45 degree angle????

  • I made my bed like this… I feel accomplished 🙂

  • wonder how long in the am do they have to make the bed so perfect? hey when your sheets are nice and tucked in and the bed well made, that’s a peaceful sleep

  • Good job, excellent information.
