Here's something a little different.
Four of our Rolling thunder members are portraying LRRPs (Recondo school candidates on their last training mission
Before graduating the gruelling course at the Recondo school Nha Trang .
The last training mission before graduating was a live mission on the island of Hon Tre just off the coast of Nha Trang Vietnam.
Everyone who attended the school had to be a volunteer and in good physical shape
To be expected of him
The course lasted 20 days and composed of 310.5 hours of training, with a live mission on a island just east of Nha Trang .. The island was known as Hon Tre and had VC in and around it , the Recon teams had every asset available: from arty to fast movers .
Consist of men from 4 different infantry unit all airborne and they all came with a different MOS and all is looking forward to becoming a (TL) team leader or assistant.
The Recondo school at Nha Trang wasn't only open to the US army but also its allies :
ROK , Korea
And the famous
Aus/Nz SAS .
The best candidate from each class would receive the rebound Randall Knife for being the best . (see picture)
