Kit Up!

Groom for the March Up


Submitted by Kathy Baumgarten

During the Iraq invasion in 2003, many of the females on base turned gray-haired . . . seemingly overnight. It wasn't the stress of war.  It was the fact that Miss Clairol hadn't been packed in their kit.  A few months later, along with cat food(?) Blonde #2 showed up on the shelves.  Resultantly, all the girls went Platinum. There were no barbers for the guys, either.  It was hair clippers from home or a bald head. One fellow in our unit was getting a trim when the clippers died.  We saw him running across base with half a haircut.  He emerged for chow a few hours later with a bald head.
