Wow, high levels of caffeine and sugar might be bad for your sleep? Who would have thought?

You know MSG Brad Sand that's what I love about you - you're so logical. Must be a midwestern thing. ;-)

Thank you LTC Hillary Luton that might be one of the nicest things someone has said to me in the a while.

Yes there is a better alternative. It's called being a civilian. I know for me, I don't sleep well because I am subconsciously anticipating the next hit time, or I'm on 24-hour guard, or I am expected to plow 40 acres without a mule (lol that's your reference SGM (Join to see)).

The military life makes a healthy sleeping pattern nearly impossible.

Yeah, I used to love having COB at 2000 and being told I have to be back at 0330 for Weapons draw for our weekly ruck marches..... Then there was that time the rakkasans (3rd BCT 101st ABN) messed up their 20 mile ruck and ended up doing a 22, so our commander had to "Challenge" them by making our guys do a 25 mile ruck...... SO happy I am out of the Army, and I have NORMAL work hours and sleep.

SSG V. Michelle Woods Looks like we suffer from the same ills. I worked a lot of shift work while I was in the service so I lived off of coffee and enrgy drinks. Anyways as a civilian I still have a lot of issues with sleep...lack of it that is ; )

Nothing puts me out faster than riding in the back of a M2/3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle. The alarm clock is "Dismount Right!"

SFC Mark Merino - I actually didn't mind being keyed up. It was helpful on the one-day ops, but that crash was something else.

Whose idea was it to make the new PT uniform black anyway?  I mean even with a reflective uniform we need to go running festooned with PT belts, now what do we have to do, paint it orange when we get it?
