On October 24, 2013, The Fightin’ Tiger Battalion conducted its first tactics lab of the semester. The low crawl, high crawl, 3-5 second rush, buddy team rush, and a few squad formations were the training focus of this lab. To give them practice developing their command presence, the ML IIIs took the lead teaching the skills learned in this lab to the younger Cadets. The last part of the lab was used as drill and ceremony practice. The ML IIIs practiced taking charge of formations and calling cadence, and the ML Is and IIs developed their knowledge of marching commands and marching form. At the conclusion of training, Cadet Charity was nominated as ‘Cadet of the Lab’ not only for taking charge by marching a platoon as an ML I, but also because she did an excellent job above and beyond what is expected of an ML I.
