Austin Peay State University ROTC Conducts “BLITZ” Training on Cumberland River

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Anyone driving down Riverside Drive on September 9th might have seen a peculiar sight on the Cumberland River near McGregor Park. Two zodiacs—black inflatable military boats—were crossing the river filled with Austin Peay State University Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) cadets. The cadets were rowing fervently to get to the other side of the river, retrieve two mock casualties and transport them back to the APSU campus.

The mission was part of the ROTC program’s weekly Tuesday morning BLITZ. One cadet is chosen each week to lead the squad in a predetermined mission that creates an environment of adversity, both physically and mentally.

High temperatures dominate Clarksville’s 2014 Riverfest Festival opening day

 

2014 RiverfestClarksville, TN – The opening day of Riverfest was summed up in one word, hot! I was sweating from the moment I arrived at 5:00pm, until I left at 11:00pm. A chance of rain had been forecast but thankfully did not appear, or it would’ve made it even more humid.

Crowds begin trickling in shortly before the 5:00pm opening, and things picked up steadily through the evening. Turnout was lower than expected but that was likely due to people avoiding the heat, and the forecast showers.
