COLD WEATHER CONSIDERATIONS
Breakdown of medical conditions seen on average (Numbers will of course vary slightly by phase and depending on training cycles):
Flora/Fauna. Most plants and insects that you will encounter here are not of the friendly variety. Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac are extremely prevalent in this region. Fire ants, Hornets, Wasps, Mosquito’s, Chiggers and Ticks are predominant here.
Foot Care. This is a basic soldier skill. Your feet have to carry you for the entire course, not taking care of them early will only result in the course being harder for you than it already is. Foot powder, changing socks and blister care are the keys to keeping your feet in shape. We will provide you with the materials and guidance, but you need to take responsibility for taking care of your own feet.
