End of Week 5: CBRNE Exam, Preparing for FTX, APFT

Week 5 is complete.

Monday started out with PT at 0520.  We did a 3 mile run at a 9 min mile pace (in the 16-18 minute ability group).  After PT was classes.  I went volunteered at did the 1st class presentation.  It was nice to get it out of the way.  For the presentation you can pick any military subject and you have to present on it for 7 to 10 minutes using PowerPoint.

Tuesday again started out with PT at 0520.  This was a light day of PT. It included a mile run and push-ups and sit-ups.  Not much to discuss but more classes.

Wednesday started off with PT at 0520.  We did another 3 mile run.  After classes we went to the electronic firing range.  This was pretty cool.  It simulates shooting just like at the real range.  After getting the hang of it I was able to hit 36 out of 40 for expert.

No PT on Thursday due to the APFT on Friday.  Today was just more classes and class presentations.

Friday we had the APFT at 0450.  Good news is I passed!  I am glad that is over with.   Next up was the CBRNE exam.  This is really easy.  It is open book and open notes (the only test that is this way).  We won't know the results until Monday but I am sure I passed (70% or greater is passing).  After lunch we had a final exam review (Monday is our final exam).  The review doesn't really help much.  Just make sure you read and remember the ELO's on every presentation and you will be fine.  In the afternoon we went to AMEDD Regimental night.  This is basically a chance for you to meet people in your AOC and at bases you will be stationed at.  For reservist/guard this is a real waste of time. For active duty it made a little more sense.  After the event we headed out for the weekend.
