This last Friday, Unit 54 advanced from Basic Training with 40 men. The men were praising God for what He had done in their lives over the last nine weeks and soon family members were talking about the change in their sons.
Families of recruits are entertained at a reception and shown the Advanced Training available at ALERT.

Basic Training Unit 54 spent their Thanksgiving week engaged in the Basic Responder Challenge, a three day competition involving physical, navigational, and mental challenges. Reformed for the Challenge into six squads, the men faced new team dynamics while tackling a variety of tasks, some old and rehearsed, others new and unique.
The unit forms up to run the obstacle course at the beginning of day two’s Adventure Race.
