What a great opportunity to see some aspects of training the troops go through. I attended on Wednesday at Location 2 and the troops provided a step by step of the procedures being performed. Like living the life of a soldier, all aspects were covered as to why the procedures were being done and the equipment used and why. Very fortunate to have that here. Great for those who are thinking of being a soldier or want an idea of the training.
