This is the start of our mounted (riding) IED (improvised explosive device) training. Trhoughout the day we would run simulated convoys through villages, open terrain and dense forest and would be attacked. First they taught us what to look for and how to react, then sent us on to react to them. Overall it has been good training, though now very applicable to where we are going and for the jobs we will do, but again useful for every soldier. I'll try and post again tonight. Kids Daddy loves you!
