Is not bridge building an integral part of being a Sapper? Is mobility not one of our primary functions, and bridging a major part of that? Then why the heck are they taking bridging off the 3's and 5's? Our new sappers are not going to be trained in bridging at all. (in case you doubt this I just got back from CFSME) This is ridiculous. I know at my unit we bridge all the time, and it's the same at many other reserve units. Can anyone tell me the rational for this? It just doesn't make sense to me.

ender,
are they taking it away from both the reg and res 3's & 5's? Or if only from the res, I'm afraid you have your answer.

Bridging is not comming out of the QL3 or QL5. The ACROW Bridge and NSB are comming out of both courses, and were removed from the officer courses this year. MGB and MR/MFB will continue to be taught in these courses. The reason for this is that NSB and ACROW are both rear ech bridges and not a need to know thing for all sappers. These bridges will still be taught on a seperate course that only some engineers will take.

For reserve anyway I had heard that they are getting rid of MGB.

I would understand if they were just getting rid of ACROW, since it's such an annoyingly complicated bridge.

There was a lot of missinformation and rumor on this topic floating around RETS this summer. The MGB is staying for the reserves and regular force.


Chimo!

Chimo!
