Re: JUNGLE EXPERT!?
That's pretty funny.
If CWLC is what I think it is we used to call it ALIT (Arctic Light Individual Training). I taught parts of this course for awhile for both officers and enlisted. It really wasn't too hard -- one night in the field without a tent in the winter, introduction to basic ski and snowshoe skills, rappelling, and some health and welfare concerns. At the time, every soldier had to participate before they could go to the field with their unit.
Light engineers must be proficient in marksmanship, demolitions, light infantry skills, and field-expedient engineering. Because of the austere conditions in which they operate, light engineers must have knowledge of all weapons in their unit, an intimate understanding of the weapons systems of the forces they support, and a working knowledge of the enemies' weapons. The close combat skills of light engineers must be unequaled. They must hold total confidence in their abilities to apply these skills and tools.
