Pathfinders Prepare For The Call During Hurricane Season

Soldiers, from Foxtrot Company, 2nd Battalion, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, prepare to storm the beach at Mott Lake during their waterborne operations training last week. “The primary purpose of our training here at Mott Lake is to make sure all of our waterborne operations equipment is operational in case of a natural disaster, such as a Hurricane Katrina type event, where we get called out and utilize the zodiacs,” said Cpt. Kevin J. Stein, the company commander. Zodiacs are inflatable boats the pathfinders, as well as other military units, use for water movement operations, said Pfc. Carl J. Parsons, a native of Orlando, Fla., and rifleman with 2nd Platoon. Photo by Staff Sgt. Thaddius Dawkins
