A thursday night room cleaning to prep for a inspection friday morning that is required to go way beyond the point of clean to ridiculous things like no ice in your freezer, no water in your sink, no hygiene products in your shower. Most of the time you truly believe that someone woke up one morning, sat down with a pen and paper and just came up with a bunch of ridiculous things to look for in these "inspections". Basically Field day is just another tool used by Marine Corps leadership to piss off and demoralize Marines on a weekly basis.

A United States Marine Corps Field Day is very simple to explain. The bottom line is that it is done once a week and it is comprehensive. It is not a "Haze Ex" nor is it a way to "Punish the boots". It is a disciplinary tool to be used to instill a little self discipline so that rooms stay sanitary and Marines stay sharp.

Unfortunately, in the hands of inexperienced leaders, it becomes a haze ex. This was never the intent. When you think of all the discipline tools we have lost in the past 20 years, The "field day is one of the last things that makes a Marine different from a "service member". Never lose your traditions...
We are gonna field day the shit out of this place!

1. n. a silly adventure. 2. n. a day in elementary school where children do track and field. 3. v. (orig. US Coast Guard) to clean beyond the point of all logic.
1. Those kids had a field day with those squirt guns. 2. I love the shot put at field day. 3. You boys did not field day the head. You just cleaned it.

One day out of the week (generaly Thursday) when you are forced to clean everything in your room or squad bay like it was fresh out of the department store. Your work is then inspected by someone with higher rank (who's house has probably never been "field day'd") and it is this persons responsibility to find any spec of dust, wrinkled sheets, and/or pubic hair in and around the most ridiculous places you could imagine.
JJ: We have field day tonight.

Sean: What? Tell everyone I died man, I'm dipping out!
