I'm not all that sure that the Army has an special skills. They're the grunts, the foot soldiers, the cannon fodder/pawns on the chess board. Special Forces have special skills; like Green Berets, SEALs, Marines, Rangers etc. I know what you mean though; we had the same sort of thing at the Alaska Military Youth Academy. Good physical fitness and some good team-building exercises; one in particular was pretty interesting. There were 72 of us total; half from one side of the barracks and the other half from the other side of the barracks. It was all one "barracks" but it was divided down the middle...I forget the name of the airforce base it was on; it was a joint military base somewhere near Anchorage....Ah, Elmendorf Airforce Base and the Richardson Airforce base if I recall correctly. But yeah; during the team-builder exercise all 72 of us had to silently communicate with each other and organize our group into a giant circle; once we had that accomplished, and still without talking, we all had to turn the same direction and sit down on the lap of the person behind us at the exact same time. We were out in the rainy courtyards for quite a while before we all finally nailed it haha. After boot camp the fat guys were thin, the thin guys were bigger and the fit guys stayed the same. Got to go in a blackhawk, but it was mostly ust a little treat; I learned more about choppers working for the DOF than at AMYA lol.
Stay true. Stay free. Stay safe.
