Nowhere in what we taught did we teach people to go to a knee during CQB, or any of some of the other "questionable" stuff that you saw in some of those pics. Just remember that a lot of them were tongue firmly planted in cheek. Especially the CQB pics.
Errr... Sorry boss was just having fun aiming for Brian's peter.. my eyes are not as good as they used to be.
Yeah, after looking at the pics I realized we dont have live shots..... So Camp Skeletor will remain the best kept secret on this site.
Snaps you guys did Landnav???
We probably shouldn't have waited till the very end to stage the shots. I think we were all tired and in a hurry to get it wrapped up. I know by that point I could no longer feel my feet.

Yes, they taught us how to plot out points and the distance between them on a map as well as pace counting and using a compass to find the points we plotted.
