At my encampment we couldnít do facing movements or salute officers on gravel because we may trip and fall and or twist our ankles
 
We could not walk through 1 Ĺ foot gently sloping ditches because we may hurt ourselves (to fix it they put about 3 inches of white sand in the bottom and called it a land bridge)
   
We had to carry our canteens to the SHOWER and if we didnít have them we would get a 341
 
We had to have flash lights with us after dark (even thought there were street light like thing all over)

 We couldnít run ANYWHERE even when you were getting yelled at and there saying GET OVER HERE FASTER!! GO LETS MOVE then they would say NO STOP DONíT RUN! THATíS A SAFETY HAZARD!

Ps Iím not trying to be disrespectful with this post I just think that this stuff is funny (and kinda ridiculous) and I understand that safety is important
If you have any funny safety hazard and or hazing stories please post on here!

Those were all of a result of some stack of CAPF 78s that a poor encampment staff member had to fill out each year.

They seem stupid, but cadets are extremely creative at finding out ways to get hurt.

It has been said, that in the 6th century BC, the great philosopher Lao Tzu, walked into the desert to die alone, sick at heart of the ways of men. I am beginning to suspect that he may have been in Cadet Programs.....

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

LOL! At My Encampment, there was a huge drill field, but, it was filled with holes! So, we had tons of people twisting their ankles!  :P

If anybody has been to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (Home to NJWG Basic Encampment), they should know that there's a special breed of "mutant-steroid" gophers that are out to twist all of our cadet's ankles. That is, if they don't fall into the hole completely. ::)
