All my training came from pretty much things that I did in the Army. Most of my career was in the 82nd Airborne.
And I spent two years in the 101st Airborne where I was a platoon sergeant. I spent three and a half years doing long-range surveillance. And I also was an instructor at the Jungle Warfare Training Center in Panama
where I taught small unit tactics and jungle plants and living. What I do for the Navy right now is teach basic land survival to Naval Aviators. The Naval Aviator can find himself or herself anywhere in the world in a matter of hours. If that aircraft decides not to work, it’s going to leave you stranded in a remote area. And this might be an area where there’s no support as far as shelter, water, and food. And you’re going to have to provide for yourself. And it’s very important that you understand the basic techniques that will
enable you to be able to survive in these types of situations.
