My dear mother has arrived to spend a week or so with me to avoid the heat of the desert. It took me an hour to unload her Jeep. Not an hour to unload and unpack and stow, just to unload. How that woman can fit so much stuff in one vehicle is a mystery for the ages.
Most of the load was foodstuffs. I’ve been eating out of the frigde and freezer for two weeks to try to make room. It wasn’t enough. I’ve good more food on hand now than most small countries.
When I moved to Indiana from Colorado, I went via my childhood home in Washington. Mom loaded my Dodge Daytona with everything I needed to set up a complete household. It was a year before I finished finding things in that car to unload- when I got a flat tire I found gravy packets in the well for the spare tire.
If the Army had hired my mom to load trucks for them, they could have saved a ton of money, because they’d only need half as many trucks.
On a slightly more serious note, most units have a standard load plan for their vehicles. Most Bradleys will carry pretty much the same things, so it makes sense to store them in the same places on each vehicle. If I need to find the spare radio batteries on your vehicle, I’d look in the same place they were stored on mine.
Here’s an example, borrowed by the folks at Army Study Guide:
