A fairly good week in training

This week was a really good week of Army training. Nothing particularly annoying happened, and it culminated with me and many others going out on pass today.

The week was rather interesting. We spent the whole week doing some good hands-on training. There were also some other classes in the time usually reserved for getting chewed out.

We had a class dealing with how to treat civilians both hostile and non-hostile on the battlefield. I am not sure what anyone took out of the class, but the information was certainly put out there. We also spent some time on convoy procedures. This is another practical skill - what to do when convoys get ambushed. We have a long field exercize for most of next week. Not fun, but good training.
