My kid has been in the Army for 6 months, and he consistently complains about the cold sleeping barracks. When he first joined the army, I thought he would complain about being loft sick, however he never liked going out with friends, and he was consistently in the house. He liked to play video games and board games, and he rarely spent much time outdoorsâ€¦ I never thought he would join the military and transfer so far away from home. When my kid calls, he usually complains about the lack of heat in the barracks, however my kid is used to the tropical, humid, and lush weather of the south, and both of us hardly ever have any cold nights, even during the middle of December or February, however sporadically the temperatures will dip into the 40s, but both of us rarely ever use our heater. My kid has been stationed in a much colder region, and he is not used to the freezing temperatures. It rains almost every afternoon, and the sun barely comes out from behind the clouds. I suppose the barracks do not have a enjoyable oil furnace, because the base is so old. I suppose it’s been in use since the first war, last month, my kid asked myself and others to send him socks, gloves, and long underwear. He also asked for some sizzling cocoa and coffee. When I talked to him last weekend, he was shivering and his teeth were chattering. I am sure the barracks have heat, but maybe they do not want the kids to get too comfortable! After all, basic training in the Army isn’t supposed to be a fun time.
