U.S. Air Force airmen from the 49th Fighter Wing out of Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., shut down an F-117 Nighthawk aircraft following the flyover portion of the aircraft's farewell ceremony at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, on March 11, 2008. The aircraft is scheduled for retirement in 2008.
The Tactical Athlete Assessment (TAA) for the Infantry! This assessment will drive training for these future Infantryman to be more Lethal on the Battlefield! This assessment will set the conditions for their specific RPE based training! The APFT tests Aerobic and Muscular Endurance, the TAA tests: Power, Anaerobic, Grip, Upper and Lower body Strength (focusing primarily on the posterior chain). The new ACFT is on the horizon and will begin testing in OCT across numerous Army Divisions and will be the physical fitness test in 2020! If all you have done in your military career is traning for the APFT, eccentrically a health screening, then you are in for a rude awakening. This new test will not be solely in one movement plane (saggittal), nor only target one energy system (oxidative); it will test all 3 planes of movement, all 3 energy systems and most of the 5 fitness components and 6 fitness skills!!! #usarmysoldier#usarmystrong#acft#tacticalathlete#powerful#apft#fitness#kettlebelltraining#horizontal#standinglongjump#300yds#pullupchallenge#h2f#infantry#sandhill#osut#lethality#humanperformance
Throwback Thursday. Finally posting a throwback on the right day lol. Still trying to improve the images/posts/content on my page. 🐺
IRAQ: Shit gets real, sometime. Yeah this is me as a Gunner for my team lol. The weapon you see is a M249 SAW. When dismounted it's heavy as hell to carry around. Not to mention the ammo cans and pouches that come along. It has a strap to take the weight off your arms tho. However, I wouldn't have traded it for nothing else during this time. Others complain that it jams on them at the wrong time but I never had any issues. My four man team was nicknamed "The Whole Damn Show" ....well because that's what we were lol. At least up until the day this picture was taken.This is the same day I actually lost my driver and team leader to shrapnel injuries. My MP company was activated to respond to a riot downtown. During the riot we were trying to control the crowd by pushing them back under a bridge. While under the bridge someone on the bridge above us dropped two grenades below. No one was killed but several were injured (My team leader and driver included).The injured were eventually flown to a hospital in Germany as usual. I was assigned a new team, purple hearts were given to those that were hurt, and I never saw my boys again. Smh. Crazy.
