A message from Frater Ron, who is in the Army Reserve:
Greetings from Fr. Leonard Wood! Some of the skills and adventures I've had so far are: Trained to shoot on an M16 A2 rifle; learned how to administer an IV, suffered in a CS (Tear gas) chamber, hiked a 2km, 7km, and 8km road march bearing 50 lbs of gear and equipment, ran several obstacle courses, repelled from a 3 story (45') structure, killed a bunch of rubber manequinns with my bayonet, and TKO'ed a guy from another platoon in Pugi Sticks (ask Bill Parker about this). And Basic Training is only half way through. Boy, am I sore.
In St. Philip,
Ron S. Clemente
