ABSTRACT
The article illustrates the training for U.S. soldiers who are members of the Division Rapid-Reaction Force (DRRF). The soldiers are flown to a crash site by Black Hawk and they also undergo cold-load training. In the first part of the exercise, the DRRF responded to a simulated downed aircraft. Then the DRRF team quickly set up a perimeter and focused on extracting the pilots and providing medical care. The soldiers will critique themselves to identify areas of weakness after the exercise, in order to focus on improving in those areas.
