“Practice makes perfect” is an adage the Mighty Armed Forces take to heart. This months training exercises include a few updates in the way troops do business on the special ops side of things. Using a host of complex systems that provide synchronized information on the location of friendly and hostile forces, GPS (Global Positioning Systems) have become such an integral part of troop movement, that todays soldier requires new hi-tech training on how best to map out their individual missions, gather battlefield bearings and quickly rendezvous with other unit forces.
After passing his physical fitness test as well as the pool portion, Capt. Perry our resident diving expert is excited at the chance to practice his new skills in the field. “I received a packing list, but not much else” said the Captain “I’m not sure what’s in store during this training exercise but the next 3 weeks should be some serious fun”
As military professionals, both Capt. Perry and Major Mac know that learning new operations and tactics help make them better at their jobs. Whether aiding foreign internal defenses or conducting special reconnaissance, the successful completion of the missions these men are asked to carry out start with expert training. Hooah!!
