This weekend, cadets from Princeton's Tiger Battalion joined cadets from Rutgers Battalion and Seton Hall Battalion to conduct ROTC's annual spring training exercises known as JFTX. The four-day event took place at Ft. Dix, NJ. Cadets completed various technical, physical, mental, and leadership challenges including an elaborate training exercise which required them to infiltrate a hypothetical hostile area in order to support a friendly local government against rebel forces. The infiltration exercise itself was broken up into smaller missions that ranged from raids to ambushes to key leader engagements. Cadets used real weapons firing blanks and carried full ruck sacks to mirror field conditions.
