We're still waiting for some new, required equipment to come in before they'll let us leave. We could be here till the first week of May. In the meantime, we're lining up some more good training. On Wednesday we fire on the Reflex Range. This is basically an opportunity to test our reflexes firing our weapons-- practicing being quick and accurate on the draw. We're also learning some hand-to-hand combat techniques every morning this week taught by Fort Riley's SWAT team.

In addition to the hooah training I just mentioned, we're checking out the new equipment as it trickles in. It's all state-of-the-art photography and videography equipment that has my journalists drooling! We are performing functions checks on the new stuff, inventorying it, training on it, and packing it for shipment to Afghanistan.
