Good times indeed. Go Infantry...
This looks all too familiar...
The Island is getting evacuated recruits and on duty DIs and support personnel are going to GA. Students will be allowed to drive out of bounds
Think they’ll all come back?
I'm at Bragg instructing, been waiting for the call to cancel the final exercise and release students, especially our Florida guys.
Last hurricane caused a decent amount of flooding in central NC. I wasn't here but had friends here in various capacities.
The recruits will. There's a marine logistics base in Albany.
No, I teach at an advanced skills course.
Yeah more than halfway done
Not really something I'll say here to be honest.
Damn stay safe I just drove by fayettville on my way up to VA.
I would think Ft. Bragg, NC, and Parris Island, SC, would have designated locations on post for just such circumstances with students going through 'selective' courses. I would imagine a few days (or one week) for a hurricane. Not sure about how damage and flooding after the storm would affect training conditions. Training has to stop, but not end. You can't end the course and graduate students early (yeah, that would be nice - not happening).
Students would be put in a 'holding' pattern like 'recycles' at Ranger school. Orders extended. I think the best option would be to have everyone moved (bus or plane) to another military location prior to the hurricane for the duration of the course. A real logistical headache. Is there not a plan 'B' in place for these kind of situations for both the U.S. Army and U.S. Marines? Curios to know how different schools handle this situation.
I would figure the SF and Delta boys would 'weather' the storm with a box of MREs, water, and shelter.
* Edit: Add an AM radio and extra batteries.
@heavyarms21 make sure to add in a "The Stripper From Toby's is Not Wife Material" class
It depends on the course, there's also consideration for the instructors and their families. If guys families were not local we'd probably weather the storm with a 30 pack of Coors and a lot of Copenhagen.
@Phr3121 Look at this 7'0 tall infantry officer who just got his tab. He played basketball at Duke and was in the NBA for a couple of years.
Good on him.
Also that poor bastards knees
@Phr3121 A tiny female Air Force Lt also got tabbed in the same class.
I think that headgear is 2 sizes too small...
