    It's a good rule. Soak up every ounce of info you can before you start your missions.

    If you're able to do it, go through the 5-day Iron Claw route clearance course. You'll be able to go out with us after completing it! :run:

    No - the course is designed for anyone that will be going on a RC mission - no matter what level of training/experience they have. Any Joe on the FOB can take the course. But it is an an absolute requirement. We had a General do a ride-along with us once. He had to take the course first. :mamoru:

    You'll probably need to focus on your own shit first, but keep it in mind for if/when you want a break or change of pace. :wiggle:

    After a few months with no options for hot coffee while on missions, you'll beg for something like this. I popped one that was sent to me on a cold night in January while on route and it was like the angels started singing and the heavens opened wide and God himself looked down and smiled on me.

    The only thing I didn't like about them is the amount of coffee you get. About half of the bulk of the container is the heating portion.

    Seems to be blocked from here just like everything else.

    Sounds neat though I guess.

    The hot chocolate goes for 5 for $5 here. Me and the wife love it. Boggled everybody at work.

    Taste is smooth and creamy (hot chocolate). Still in for trying the coffee though. I can see where this stuff would be awesome out in the AOR. HUA.
