If it Ain't Rainin'... by tanikel If it Ain't Rainin'... by tanikel

U.S. Army Spc. Nathan Franco, 55th Signal Company (Combat Camera), and his team work together to cross
an obstacle in the Leader Reaction Course (LRC) at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., March 25, 2014.  The LRC was designed
to challenge Soldiers' problem-solving skills and encouraging teamwork.  (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Kristina Truluck/Released)



...it ain't trainin'.  A WEEK of snow and slush and mud.  Those of you who have been in for a minute
know the joys of trying to conquer an o-course in the suck.  The LRC was designed to kick your ass. 
But you can't not have fun on the LRC.  You're either laughing at yourself or others while trying
to come up with creative ways of crossing 'moats' using poles or using your teammates as human ropes. 
And if you're the photographer...you're monkeying your way up the obstacles right alongside them to
take a better photo.


My military imagery is available for public domain. As the photographer, I don't have control over
how you may use it, but I ask that it be done with respect to the individuals represented here.

Haha probably a tie between this and the confidence course for my favorite training, shooting ranges excluded of course.

Agreed!  I love doing the reflexive firing ranges.  I'm oddly more accurate when shooting and moving.
