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).

Cavalry scouts with 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) conduct intelligence training on a virtual patrol Feb. 12.

Written by  Capt. Nicholas Drake
