It’s been said that the only living creature that runs towards fire is a firefighter. No offense to ‘America’s Heroes,’ but this image seems to indicate there are some other equally brave people out there.

Soldiers of the 1st Battalion, 40th Cavalry Regiment conduct fire phobia training during at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center  (JMRC) in Hohenfels, Germany. The soldiers in this training exercise are part of a rotation designed to prepare the unit for peace support, stability, and contingency operations.

According to the Facebook page of the 1st Squadron, 40th Cavalry: “this training not only prepares the soldiers to deal with fire during a riot, but it builds confidence in their assigned equipment and uniforms.”
