NCOA students get taste of SOG life

  • Published
Students of the Erwin Professional Military Education Center's NCO Academy Air Commando Flight experienced a small slice of what it's like to be a Pacific Air Commando during a visit to the 353rd Special Operations Group here July 6.

Tech. Sgt. Michael Comley, a Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape specialist with the 353rd Special Operations Support Squadron, set up miniature obstacle course for the students to represent a small portion of the duties of the Air Commandos in the 353rd SOG. The class split into two teams to compete during the course. The students had to paint their faces, answer questions, start a fire, eat crickets and worms, and carry a simulated downed aircrew member to the finish line.

This is the third time the 353rd Special Operations Group has hosted the Air Commando Flight since beginning visits in February.
