My grandfather, who passes away just a couple of years ago, was a medic in the 7th Armored Division through the Battle Of The Bulge, taught his kids to make beds this way, who tried to teach us the same. Apparently the test is to bounce a quarter on the bunk to check for tightness.
This is way too cool! Both my parents taught us too how to make our beds like this that when I joined the NAVY, it was just too easy :D Geeze both my husband and I still make our beds this way…thanks for the mem/sharing!
My Father, an Air Force Colonel, taught me how to make my bed this way when I was a child, and the method has stuck with me ever since. I am 30 now and friends and boyfriends have always marveled at the sheer insanity of making your bed this way. One boyfriend likened sleeping my bed to the sensation of being a slice of individually wrapped American cheese.
