“We are a AIT company, AIT meaning Advanced Individual Training. There is probably about 500 of us in the company. We are training to become EOD techs. We train for 10 weeks at Fort Lee Virginia, and another 29 weeks at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. Our company is Charlie Company 832 Ordnance Battalion. In the original picture, a group of us were on a detail to the USO to help them sort gift bags that are being sent overseas. We were told to remove the packages of Ramen Noodles and put them in separate bags. I didn’t take a lot of photos of that day, but I did take some. I included some other photos of life at Charlie Company. I really appreciate all that you do for the military, and I try and tell everybody I know about The Chive and, subsequently, The Brigade.”
Thanks Chase for sending these in and for giving theBrigade a shout to your buddies.
