Today was Halloween, which meant costumes and candy! While I am not in Army, I did get to see the Army guys at PT run and “trick or treat” with costume pt gear on. And then again at morning formation, various upperclassmen wore different costumes. Our PL and two of our other cadre wore teletubby costumes, while others were aliens, Siamese twins, etc. While as rooks we did not get to participate, it definitely made morning formation more interesting.
However, what I did get to participate in was passdown in costume. Our whole platoon scrapped together costumes with items that we had, and items we were able to acquire. My roommate, Taylor, was dressed as a peanut [pictured below] as a tribute to her peanut butter addiction. While I dressed up as Wednesday Adams, which unfortunately many in my platoon said didn’t exist. It was really fun to see how everyone got creative with the items that we had available. Also, and added bonus was that our XO and 1Sgt handed everyone in our platoon a bag of candy.
