Military Now Makes Use of Shipping Containers as Barracks

When I enlisted in the military I was quite gobsmacked by the base.

I pictured sleeping in a tent in the middle of the forest or desert.

I pictured sand getting in my eyes, ears plus up my nose. To my surprise, though, the base was entirely a giant shipping container. Apparently a new thing is military plus training facilities that are built from shipping containers! From the outside the military base resembled a rectangular grey box. Inside each of us have our own little space with a bunk. The shipping container comes with electricity, plumbing plus Heating as well as A/C for us soldiers. The prefab bathroom space has 12 individual toilet stalls plus 12 shower stalls. The water pressure is adequate plus it is set up just like a real bathroom. The two of us even have soap dispensers plus hand sinks. You would never contemplate that it is a shipping bag once you enter through the door. It is nice being totally sealed away from the outside. The bag is well-sealed so no bugs or critters get into it. What is entirely amazing is that the entire container is impenetrable – bulletproof. Obviously for military situations this is amazing. Also the training facility is in the next lot over, you never suppose what might happen. Having a fireproof plus bulletproof facility is so smart. The training facility is neat because there are steel targets, bullet traps plus shooting ranges there, then whatever soldiers need is in the training facility. It entirely helps our skills stay sharp plus our minds focused. There is no worry about spine-chilling anyone since those shipping containers are in a separate area too.
