[male narrator] Training how we fight plays a key role in winning battles against the enemy. [female narrator] Sergeant Deyane Moses takes us to one realistic training site for soldiers preparing to deploy overseas. [Sgt. Deyane Moses, Producer] [Col Thomas Miller] Soldiers are going to war. The environment that we create here is an exact duplication of what they’re going to see when they get to the theater. [Ft. Huachuca, Arizona] They won’t be shocked when they get to their first unit, and the environment that they work in would have become indistinguishable from what they trained in. So when they get to their units, they can contribute on day one and be part of the team. [SPC Christopher Weir] “That was actually really good- I could only imagine what it would be like if they never exposed us to this and we came out in the field and we suddenly have bullets whizzing by our head–I mean, that’s called shock. [Weir in field] We took contact and we beat the living pants off of them. Someone got shot–here–right in the head–and you should have seen the look on their face when they realized, ‘Wow, if this was real, I’m gone.’ Better to make mistakes here, when you’ve got a paintball flying at you, not a bullet. [female soldier] We shoot him? [male soldier] Not if he resists–you can tap him, but that’s all you can do. [another male soldier] You tap him. [female soldier] Why don’t you shoot him in the leg? [SSG Helen Auclair, Platoon SGTO Co 305th MI Bm] You know, it’s not going to be pitch perfect, it’s not going to be absolutely perfect, but I’m sure throughout the week they’ve got something they’re learning. [military drill, yelling, gunfire] [SSG Auclair] Sometimes you get more out of your losses than you do your wins, so they’ll get something out of this for sure. [SPC Weir] It’s just a way of trying to be prepared. We’re going to be deployed probably 3-4 months after we get out of here so this kind of training is the thing we need to make sure that we don’t mess up in the field and get people killed. Keep a look out, guys.
