On a typical day we would usually utilize our time to train in weapons training, combat training, leadership skills, physical exercise, getting ready for deployment, and making sure that our vehicles and equipment would be running great and in excellent condition to perform at their best. Most of the time we would go out to the field and do more advanced training in mock situations, go to shooting ranges, and mostly work on our vehicles to make sure they were in great condition at all times. On days we had nothing planned, it would be a majority of different chores to do around our unit, as far as mowing the lawns, cleaning the buildings, picking up trash, etc.
