Russell shared with me about his experience at air assault...sounds extreme & challenging, to say the least!! If you're interested, I'll share with you through pictures! Just start scrolling...
238 soldiers entered the 12-day course; only 158 graduated. It's not an easy course, for sure. Russell knows that the Lord carried him through those 12 days of exhaustion, including learning new materials and application. The final morning, all soldiers had to awake around midnight, after maybe two hours of sleep, in order to clean up their bunks and prepare for a 12-mile ruck march before graduation! They dressed in full uniform, boots and all, threw their 25-30lb rucks over their shoulders, and they had to march/run it within 3 hours! They started the march/run at 3am, finishing no later than 6am, in order to graduate.
Although I'm proud of Russell for setting his mind and heart to both withstanding and completing this tremendous challenge, he and I praise the LORD for carrying him through it all! WOW! I'm impressed.
Welcome home and great work, my over-achieving husband!! :)
