8 NCOs from A CO and B CO are currently attending the Specialized Deliberate Breach Course (SDBC) for two weeks at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The Specialized Deliberate Breach Course trains engineers to breach in different environments, including urban and subterranean, and with a variety of methods. Building this expertise in our NCOs improves our ability to provide engineer breach support in complex modern environments. In the pictures, A CO's SSG Matthew Hill practices exothermic breaching with a Broco torch to cut through steel.
