FTX Has Come and Gone

We had a week of going out to the field and learning some of the elements of crawling in the sand wearing all of our gear (helmet, flack jacket, two full canteens of water).


Here are some pictures of my experience.
We had a squad competition at the "Fit to Win" obstacle course.
Our squad had the best time.










We also had other important training, such as basic first aid and how to follow a patrol team in advancing.











So, at the end of the week, how did I feel?

A picture has a thousand words...














Now, we move on to the final phases of my training, which entails a lot of how to be a chaplain in the Army.
