Meeting New People.

April 13, 2013

At JFTX (Joint Field Training Exercise), I met many new Cadets. When training out in the field with people, it is a lot different than just meeting someone here on campus or in the streets. When you train with anyone, you develop a bond. These bonds develop as you train together, take care of each other, share food, share water, share equipment, and just share the experience. With the whole tick scenario that I talked about in my last blog called “Aggravation.”, that bonded many of us more than most things could have. We were all out there, sharing the agony and for me, facing one of my greatest fears. ROTC is great in that aspect because when you’re out there in the woods, it’s just you and them. No matter what color, what gender, you all wear the same uniform, and share the same experience.
