    Why are you on the computer? When I went to PLDC, we were locked down for a month.

    Everything is on a computer. All the classes, etc. We go to class from 0600-1700 every day. Internet, etc, they don't care what we do as long as it's not porn, etc. Teachers don't care :o


    Fuck that :o

    Mine was on computer too, but we didn't have internet. But, I brought my flash drive with all the Super Nintendo games and emulator. I was playing Super Mario World the whole time.:rofl:

    If you can do a word search in a PDF document, you can pass all of the in-class exams in WLC.

    When I went through WLC they were about to change the format. More FTX and less classroom. I guess they never made the change. :hs:

    I never went to PLDC, so I can't say. I read something in the Army Times a while ago about yet another pending change to WLC. Shorter times, more "garrison-type" stuff, etc. The gist was that they are gearing it less for combat and more for post-war times. :ugh2:

    :rofl: My SSG did say they were changing it to more FTX possibly too. I'm lucky because right now it's so cold that they might not even do an FTX :big grin:

    :rofl: we just did that today. Fuck, you don't even need a compass. You just look at the map, find the grid location, and walk to the area. Tomorrow is the test, and there is no reason I should get less than a 100%.

    Ashland is where I did my WLC as well. It was the first "self-correcting" Land Nav course I'd ever been on. What a fucking joke! :bowrofl:

    My class was the only one that had infantry SGLs. We did extra PT, land nav in full battle rattle, etc. My SGLs were the only thing that made WLC enjoyable for me.

    Is SSG Loos still there?

    Well fuck, it changed to an easier route than what you went through.

    We didn't do an FTX because it was too cold, we never used our ruck, we only wore our LBE and kevlar for 3 days.

    Our SGLs were from a calvary unit. One SGL did pretty hardcore shit a few years back, but they were still lazy as hell :rofl:

    I don't recall a SSG Loos, we had SSG Engen and SSG Swanson.

    My class was the only one that did the harder version. Everybody else was out doing land nav in their t-shirts and acu pants. :hsugh:

    Too bad you didn't get SSG Loos. He was a motivated motherfucker. :)
