Testing the limits

Spc. John Daniels, a military policeman with the 132nd Military Police Company, calls in a casualty during an active shooter training exercise. As part of the two-day event, Daniels and his team had to react to six different events that tested their communication and action plans in case of an emergency. Daniels said that all of the training they have done up to now, has helped prepare them for this situation. "We conduct numerous training exercises between the first responders and the battle group, and I feel we are ready to handle any real-world scenario," said the Lexington, S.C., native.
