Junk on the Bunk - CS dictates that a Marine laid out his uniform issue and 782 gear (combat equipment) in the correct military manner.  This "junk on the bunk" or "things in the springs" inspection received two "gigs" for whatever.  One gig might be for the canteen that fell over on the far side of the "rack."
