Sara Zimmerman (left) and Tishel Rugland tested their skills earlier this month on the "surprise" obstacle, one of 20, at Camp Ripley's Confidence Course during the 1st Battalion, 194th Armor and 2nd Battalion, 136th Infantry Basic Training Orientation Course.
The course, which included drill and ceremony and wearing of the uniform, was for guard members who enlisted but hadn't gone to basic training yet or for soldiers who graduated from basic training and had yet to attend Advanced Individual Training.

The first squad of this platoon left canteens and head gear in an orderly fashion before participating in a Confidence Course exercise at Camp Ripley. These items were left behind for safety reasons and as a training objective. (135th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment Photos by Staff Sgt. Clinton Wood)
