Unconventional Warfare Exercise
The unconventional warfare exercise according to local law enforcement “resembles extreme role playing.” The students in this training will fire blank rounds. Moreover, they will work with Fort Bragg soliders. Who, in fact, will be acting as guerilla fighters. This information is based on the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office who said this in a Facebook post this past Monday.

On the Road to Becoming a Green Beret
In the final stage of Special Forces training is Robin Sage. That is before becoming a Green Beret. The name comes after an operative who was caught by the Nazis during World War II. They managed to escape after much more than 12 attempts.

Special Forces students, during the exercise, are instructed to help a guerrilla force overthrow the government. It would take place in a fictional country known as Pineland. This would span “about 50,000 square miles in the woods of North Carolina.”
