putz said:Just got back from 1-08. One of the best peices of kit that I got was the Camelbak Backpack. Pick it up at the PX. Once I had mine I never used the day bag again, the best part..... With some playing around you can fit another 3 Liter bladder into it as well, that means 6 liters without having to play around with kit or re-fill bladders every 5 or so hours (thats of course when I was carrying the pack). The big thing to learn is be it light infantry or mech, you'll be doing both, however, in some cases A LOT of light infantry patrolling and engagements (without LAV support). Something that during workup training we did little of.
Good point about the mech vs. dismounted preparation during workup. Every good General likes to think they're either Rommel or Patton.
If you had to do it all over again, what would the 'ideal' blend of training look like?
