Another long day! Hotter than the day before!
In the morning we went to a range (CHIP) where we practiced crawling through sand and under barbed wire, running for cover with a "CH Assistant" behind vehicles and walls, and SWEATING under our IBAs and ACHs (body armor)! We had a few heat casualties and eventually had to go back to school to avoid the sun. We had our WTT testing back at the classroom - but since I finished most of my training, I volunteered to be the "casualty" so others could demonstrate how to "manage an airway" if someone was injured in battle and couldn't breathe.
Later that night, we went back down range, hooked up with a basic training group (i.e. a bunch of privates), and participated in night infiltration - crawling through the mud and sand and barbed wire under live rounds and tracers! It was QUITE the experience!
I got home SUPER wiped out - but VERY excited to see that my family had sent a care package! It made my week! Thank you guys SO MUCH! I also got a pen from Uncle Norm which is simply incredible! See the pics!
