Tallahassee,FL- The FSU Army ROTC Seminole Battalion had their annual training exercise at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy today. The purpose of the training is to familiarize cadets with equipment and to gain confidence and leadership skills among through out the Battalion.

The cadets take part in a series of courses including a M16 rifle range and a repel tower all in part to prepare them for the many challenges they will face when they join the army. "Well the more we do all of these stations it's just like repetition so we want it to be like muscle memory in a way. So when People are presented with tasks that include rope bridge and shooting an assault machine gun anything like that we want it to be muscle memory so they don't think about it so they can just worry about leading others.," says FSU ROTC Cadet Anthony Weckerling.

From here the Seminole Battalion will have another training day next month at Camp Blanding in Starke,FL to be evaluated on the skills they have learned so far.
