Cadets learn art of combat

Yesterday, members of the Weber State University ROTC stood on the side of a mountainous terrain, looking at the body of a fallen comrade lying in a cluster of sagebrush. These are not the mountains of Afghanistan, and this is not a true casualty. Here in Ogden, cadets are undergoing a weekly lab to train MS-3 cadets how to be effective leaders.

Following a simulated combat training in North Ogden, an Army ROTC cadet interrogates another cadet who acted as a civilian Thursday afternoon. The civilian was detained after the intended mission broke down and another civilian was fatally shot.
