The Combat Leaderís Course was designed to prepare Screaming Eagles for leadership (NCO) positions. It was attended by LRRP's, Ranger's and Recon troops in addition to line personnel. Students set up LZís, studied map reading, medivac procedures and instruction on calling artillery strikes. Students also rappelled from towers and helicopters, learned sling loading (CH-47) and ladder insertion and extraction techniques.
