Air Assault rappel testing

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Kevin Serna, of San Marcos, Texas, a Phase 1 team chief at the Fort Hood Air Assault School, rappels from the 50-foot rappel tower at the air assault obstacle course, May 7, 2014. Air Assault School qualifies Soldiers to conduct airmobile and air assault helicopter operations, to include aircraft orientation, sling load operations, proper rappelling techniques and fast-rope techniques. The school itself is 10 days of rigorous, fast paced training. The high standards of the school require the student to take part in a 12-mile march with rucksack in under three hours on the morning of graduation to be awarded their wings. Iterations of the FHAAS begin with 132 students, and end with an average of 80 graduates. (U.S. Army photograph by Sgt. Ken Scar, 7th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment)
