What is the most important thing you can take with you on deployment? (TA-50 ETC. not included)

My first thought was going to be your rifle but now I'll have to think about it.

Is this one of those "stranded on a dessert island" things?

I meant something that the army doesn't provide you with.

Body wash with a poof. The water is really hard, so bar soap doesn't lather well. Just one of those nice things to have.

I'd say an MP3 player to whittle away that down time at one camp before going to another camp in the same day.

Definately. My husband's iPod has been a life saver for him. With music, photos from home and ebooks on it, he can kill a ridiculous amount of down time without ever getting bored.

The MP3 player is definitely a good idea for this... also perhaps a GameBoy Advance or PSP

Generally, how much personal stuff are you allowed to take with you?

i brought my desktop PC lol.

ID card holders (for all those times youre asked to show ID and you cant find it)

a camera so you can take a picture of something just in case... (we have had a few people get saved from UCMJ by their camera)

a good weapon cleaning kit? the issue one sorta sucks (at least mine does), one of those nifty magazine-on-the-buttstock holders, and a more comfortable sling.

and right about now im wishing i had brought DCUs instead of these ACUs >< theyre comming apart so fast...

Strangely enough, I've always found the standard issue cleaning kit to be the best tools to clean my M-16.

It amazes me sometimes when I show soldiers how to clean their weapon. The "tricks" I use were all learned from the TM. I often think I'm the only one in the Army who knows how to read.

Add individual weapon TM (-10) to the list.

I always had no problem with the standard issue but of course I was the unit armorer

My husband was never issued a cleaning kit, we had to buy one prior to deployment...along with many other things we had to purchase that he needed. Soldiers were spending crazy amounts of money at the Army store; the chashier told us that some SOs spent up to $500-$600 that day on items they needed but were not issued to them...that is painfull!
