About the event

Attendance for FTX CHARLIE is considered mandatory for Unit Leadership and expected for Unit Membership, according to the Event Attendance Guidelines set forth by the Unit S.O.P. (standard operating procedures)

If you were not in attendance at FTX BRAVO, it is considered highly important that you attend on one of the dates set for FTX CHARLIE.  You will be at a significant disadvantage moving into ECHO / DELTA if you do not attend one of these two events.

We will be re-iterating the structure, outline, and mission plan for the unit.  We will review changes and amendments to our Unit S.O.P. as well as the expectations and requirements for our new unit members.

There will be recruits patched into the unit, as well as some members receiving rank promotions.

We will begin the administration of team level unit tactics and the fundamentals of force-on-force CQB, structure entry, co-ordinated team movement, as well as basic weapon handling techniques in joint team manuevers.

We will also be administering a T-CCC style combat medic course involving real-life tactics, treatment, and procedures.

Live fire training will not be administered at this event, so please do not bring ammunition into the training site except for what you may carry in a personal defense weapon if you are a patched member.
