    Nothing like this ever happened to me. I remember doing an FTX in the snow for three days. I also remember running through the snow with a SAW while doing rifle PT.

    New Army? I remember my Squid days, up at Greats Lakes, being outside in sub-freezing temps and shoveling 4+ feet of snow....


    Guess it's all relative to where your base/post is and their average yearly climate.

    This was in Colorado. Our training intensified when we found out that we were going to Southwest Asia. The training I spoke of took place in 2005. Our unit was more relaxed in 2004 and 2007-2008. We upped our intensity in just about everything before we deployed. In 2005-2006 we were in Kuwait and were pretty high speed. We qualified twice on the rifle range and took two PT tests, all when it was 127+ degrees outside.
