Here was what we did this morning. I did not post last night at the usual time in an deliberate effort to keep some of you guessing. The method used this morning was new to most of us and can be a really good way to put some perspective on your PT if you want to do this with your units. We didn't think of the idea, we got that from Brass Ring Fitness (www.brassringfitness.com), but we like it and so we used it. For those of you that weren't there this morning...here you go.
UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter has gone down in the mountains of central Afghanistan. The Blackhawk was flying a resupply mission intending to drop food and ammunition at a COP in the area when it crashed in an attempt to avoid RPG and other insurgent anti-aircraft fire. Radio contact has been made with the pilot and the entire crew is alive but severely injured. If they are not extracted within the next 24 hours, they will inevitably be found and captured by the insurgents whose actions caused the crash.
Scale the mountain and locate the downed UH-60. Extract all wounded Americans and engage any enemy you encounter. Move to OBJ HAYES for exfil.
