These barracks rooms are why soldiers marry people they barely know

Nothing will drive a single servicemember to the altar faster than a stint in the barracks.

Unless you live in the cushy comforts of Air Force life, living in the Barracks is an unsatisfying affair. One part hostel, two parts horror-show and one part holding cell with regular inspections, nothing will put a servicemember off like living in a semi-sterile environment that is nothing short of grungy when looking beyond the surface.

From comrades who don’t know how to evacuate the metric ton of pizza boxes from their room to finding a filthy suction cup adult toy attached to the backside of the bathroom door, it seems that barracks are often home to debauchery, filth and an institutional-ish lifestyle where nobody seems to take pride in where they live.

If that’s not motivation to rank up or shack up, it’s no wonder people are fleeing the “B’s.”
