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.

Fort Campbell, KY – The room had six Soldiers sitting at tables with headsets on, moving their character across a computer screen, participating in what appeared to be a video game.
“The Virtual Battlespace System is pretty much a war-training video game, but the difference is we have a white cell that is operating behind the scenes, putting injects into the game and conducting actual face-to-face key leader engagements to simulate and add more dynamics to the game,” said 2nd Lt. Katherine Brennan, assistant S-2 with 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

Forward Operating Base Shinwar, Afghanistan – The noncommissioned officer corps is the backbone of the United States Army and critical to the combat effectiveness of its units. By contrast, the Afghan National Army’s NCO Corps is still in its early stages of development into a trusted force in the eyes of the ANA leadership.
The 2nd Infantry Kandak of 4th Brigade, 201st Corps is one of the newest Kandaks in the Afghan National Army. While the Kandak has a number of experienced leaders in senior leadership positions, the vast majority of the unit is made up of newly trained and inexperienced soldiers.
