Troops of Bravo Company, 35th Engineer Battalion, learn to rappel down a wall during Week Eight of their training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Bravo is one of three companies in the 35th Engineers. Every new soldier at Fort Leonard Wood goes through nine weeks of Basic Combat Training. Fort Leonard Wood has been the home of the Army’s Engineer School since 1988.
This wall climb is training step leading up to rappelling down the 40-foot Confidence Tower (see below).
