This morning, a few of our USF Army ROTC cadets (especially the PAO) had the opportunity to go out and conduct a 4 mile ruck with the Student Veterans of America: Tampa Chapter of USF at Flatwoods Park.

It was a pleasurable moment for our cadets & the USFSVA to build chemistry with each other by socializing and having a little bit of competition! But overall, it was a fun morning to which we hopefully can do more activities with the USFSVA again!

Two Posts in One Day? 🤔

Today at lab, our MS3s executed a Defense Operation to which they need to defend their patrol base from being overrun by our OPFORS. While the MS3s are conducting a defense, our MS1s and MS2s went over the importance of ‘Reacting to Contact, SQD Attack, and Break Contact’ to help them understand the procedures once they are placed into future operations.
