Amie Booth reviews the Green Beret Challenge’s “Behind Enemy Lines” event, their second 24 event of the year.
In the end, Class 002 finished together, with very few DNFs (who will have the opportunity to try the event again at no cost). Ballas and his excellent Cadre, presented us with engraved finisher’s knives, and a heartfelt thanks for attending. Following our event, I was able to visit the “war room” and see the timeline for the event. Though there were a few needed changes due to weather conditions, as with many events in their first run, the planning was detailed and executed flawlessly. Upon seeing the changes the event team had to make, due to the unforeseen circumstances, I was thoroughly impressed. Not one of the Class 002 members would have known that anything we experienced was not exactly what was intended. Oh, and breakfast was delicious!
