Don and Annette Hall’s September 2006 visit with F/51st LRS Day 2—19 September 2006 (cont’d) Forced March and Prisoner Surveillance Day 1  |  Day 2 (cont’d), Water Training |  Day 3  |  Day 4 On day 2, the trainees aleady had their hide sites set up because they had done so during the night after having HALO-jumped in on the previous day. The objective was to do surveillance on a suspected prisoner transfer without being detected. Other members were completing a forced march, one of whom collapsed from heat exhaustion and had to be treated on site. He recovered quickly and was able to continue the mission.

There is always planning and coordinating going on back at HQ.
Forced marches are tough, especially in the heat. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion are a real threat. After some rehydration and a short rest, this LRS member was ready to go again.
