Buchanan, TN – Charlie Rock began the day by learning the basic boat drills, and becoming familiarized with the combat rubber raiding craft (CRRC), also known as the Zodiac.

The Zodiac familiarization taught the Scouts capsizing drills, and how to react in the event of the boat flipping. They learned how to operate the boat, and were instructed on how to do beach landing sight (BLS) operations.

Marsha Blackburn Votes to Provide Critical Funding for our Troops

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

Fort Campbell Funds Included, Gitmo Transfers Prohibited

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) applauds House passage of H.R. 4909, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, legislation that provides critical resources to the Fort Campbell community and our nation’s military.

“At the same time our nation faces unprecedented threats, the men and women who protect it are facing unprecedented cuts in training and equipment. It is dangerously irresponsible to continue down the President’s path of forcing our military to do more with fewer resources. This year’s NDAA authorizes essential funds for our troops to train for strength, agility and readiness,” Blackburn said.
