We looked like this! Is the face paint necessary? No but it looks badass. Each company of cadets was trained, advised and later hunted down by Special Forces ODA, who are ghost-people that get paid to travel the world and kill. They were batshit crazy individuals with incredible tactical knowledge and a great desire to fuck with cadets.
heh yup, they be crazy. If you're gunna put camo on ya better do it right next time. Face and hands, lights on darks, darks on lights. While you're at it go jump in a mud puddle. Aim for that dirty hippy look
Two female cadets, not in my company, decided to eat a piece of C4 as per recommendation of a very stupid Specialist and were sent to a hospital, and then removed from West Point :(
A very stupid specialist? He convinced two would be future officers to eat plastic explosives. The mans a legend among the E4 mafia.
I thoroughly enjoyed the post, incredibly interesting and well written. It seems like the quality of training is extremely high, pretty damn cool man.
