Lt. Col. Christopher Forsythe welcomes the Future Soldiers in formation to the days training event at Ft. Jackson, S.C. Over 300 Future Soldiers from all companies participated in this training event.

 Future Soldiers then moved to training and received their safety briefings.

Future Soldiers were tasked to work as a team on the Team Development Course. They were briefed by Sgt. Ryan Cordell, Florence Recruiting Station, on the situation. They planned the task and worked as a team to accomplish the mission as a squad. 


Future Soldiers also conducted the Future Soldier Physical Assessment. They were given a safety briefing prior to completing the push-ups, sit-ups, and run events.


After a full day of training, the Battalions Future Soldiers are now better prepared for the rigors of Basic Combat Training. Having Ft. Jackson, S.C. in the Battalions footprint allows for hands on training to prepare for Basic Combat Training.
