25th Infantry Division Trains Jungle Experts...

FORT BENNING, Ga., (Sept. 23, 2015) - The Jungle Operations Training Course in Hawaii trains Soldiers on survival, communication, navigation, waterborne operations, traversing, knots, evasion, marksmanship and patrol base operations. (Photo by 25th Infantry Division)
When I first saw this picture I cheered.

My thinking immediately went to the fact that the Army is making a move to reclaim lost capability.  Then I read the caption and it dawned on me.  Is this a Ranger School (-) with an emphasis on the Florida phase?

If it is then it wouldn't be the first.  Sapper Leaders Course seems like its a mini Ranger School and I'm sure there are others.

Maybe the Army should just bite the bullet and open up a second Ranger Training Battalion on the West coast.  Perhaps in Washington state.  God knows it has some crazy terrain.
