Duvet Covers For The Military During my four years that I spent in the military I encountered many things that where disturbing to say the least. nd also I ran into many obstacles that I was forced to overcome. While we where preparing to go to war I treated everything like it was only a game to be played. Once we actually went over seas to Iraq I began to realize exactly how important this game of life and death was.

The fact that I was born and raised in the suburbs and not in the country where kids learn about handling and operating weapons early or the city where kids build mental and physical toughness, not onl put me at a huge disadvantage but also put me out of touch with my fellow peer group.

During most of my military experience I was playing catch up the entire time. I had two big problems that would separate me from my pears. The first being I am a clean freak and the hygienic conditioning of the bedding we where forced to sleep on there was way below my expectations. Not only that I also had a huge organization problem as well. Which is quite ironic hat I was not only a clean freak but also unorganized.

Eventually I was introduced to a solution to my worries by one of the older marines in my unit. He also did not sit to well with the bedding we where presented with but instead of sleeping on the floor like i did he slept on his own duvet cover that he brought everywhere with him. After seeing my situation he offered me one of his extra duvet cover sets for my own bed. Which I happily excepted and from then on I would use that duvet cover set for everything. Not only would I sleep on it night after night but I also used it to organize my space in a timely manor.

Whenever we had to be somewhere in a hurry I would always be the first one with all my gear ready to go packed securely in my duvet cover and because of the quality stitching I was able to hold more than I could in my old sea bag. I had done such a turn around that it impressed my team leader enough to suggest me for a promotion in the ranks. That is why I suggest that every marine, sailor, airman, and soldier should be equipped with a duvet cover.
