The web page author joined the Utah
Army National Guard on 22 January 1991 in response to Iraq's
invasions of Kuwait in August of 1990,
which started the Gulf War. And so I
had to go to US Army active duty basic training at Fort Leonard
Wood, Missouri. While at training I received instruction in how
to perform all the duties of a MOS (Military Occupational Specialty)
12B10 Combat Engineer.
Where I learn how to communicate, navigate, shoot, survive and
give first aid. Latter in advanced training I learned about explosives,
demolitions and landmine warfare.
This picture of my training platoon
is too large for my scanner so I had to scan each half left and
While training at Fort Leonard Wood
we were not authorized to take pictures. So I will have to go
back to Fort Leonard Wood and take pictures of the training areas
as they are at that time.
