Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

In preparation for deployment to Vietnam we were asked to climb a cargo net suspended from a platform on land. One fellow broke his prosthetic leg in the climb. (LSS) Point is that it is a lot harder to climb those nets than you would think. When survivors are having a hard time climbing, they deserve our consideration.
Smack: practice climbing a cargo net might be part of the training you are working on.
