They actually kept the water fountains in the barracks turned off, I guess to keep us from drinking a lot of water after PT and etc. Water bottles, Gatorade, and that kind of stuff were unheard of. In football we had water buckets and ladles, but during practice we could drink only when the coaches told us to do so.
