"LIVING THE DREAM"...or "IN THE SUCK." - Military folks are odd at times (myself included). There are times they will complain, no matter how good they have it. Others will let you know - no matter how austere the conditions - that they are "Living the Dream" and as happy as can be. Almost all military folks take pride as they "Embrace the suck," meaning that the situation is tough, dirty, "sucky," yet there's no need to complain, so they need to embrace it, make the best of it, and keep driving on. They realize that what they do is important and needs to be accomplished, and they answered the call. As I've said, military service is not for the selfish. As I visited our "troops" at our Field Training Exercise (FTX) site for the Cadet Field Leader Course, and watch the Cadet Ranger School rolling around Camp Liberty at all hours, I am always impressed by how much these teenagers truly "embrace the suck." While their friends are back home, sleeping until noon, hanging out at the mall, or wasting hours on end on mindless video games, these Challengers have been DOING something...and they are doing it well! The Cadets of the Field Leader Course are in the field through Thursday morning. They are on a 50 acre location, broken into two competing teams, deep in the woods. The Cadet Ranger School is preparing to train at Coffey Grounds, a separate location. This portion of our program isn't about marching and their beds being made just right. This is the time when they rotate leadership positions, maintain 24/7 operations, sleep under the stars, and respond to a multitude of scenarios thrown at them by the Cadre. They aren't **playing** "Call of Duty" stupid games...they are LIVING in a real-world environment. Much like Soldiers, they are dirty, most a bit smelly (showers later), they are tired, eating and trading MREs, and they are holding each other accountable in order to fulfill their mission. Despite all that, they are smiling, laughing and...well...they have learned to "embrace the suck." They are developing leadership, accountability, communication skills and confidence...all valuable skills, no matter where they go in life. Is all of it fun? No, it's not. There are times when we have to make the best of the challenges which are placed before us. There are times when we accept that adversity creates strength. There are times when we simply "embrace the suck" and drive on, no matter what gets in our way. These are life lessons which will stay with these young men and women for a long time to come. I'm very proud of all of your young Challengers. I visited the Cadet Field Leader Course last night, simply chatting about their experiences, and being reminded why I still do this after all these years. They really are extraordinary young people and they are doing things their friends can only imagine. You truly have some extraordinary young man and women, and I look forward to having many of them return to us next summer, as well as during the Cadet Staff Ride and Cadet Winter Tactical Skills Course. We have "two days and a wake-up" until the largest Graduation Review of the year. Our final week will have about 50 Cadets, with the final week of Cadet Ranger School and the one-week Cadet SCUBA School and Cadet Aviation Challenge, which will graduate on Camp Liberty on 29 Jul 17...and then 11 months to plan for next year! :) Mega-Hooah! . .
