Gas! Gas! Gas!

Recruits gain confidence & resilience as soon as they enter the gas chamber for CBRN (chemical, biological, radioactive, and nuclear) defense training. The potent effects of the CS gas hit almost immediately, and recruits endure it to become accustomed to its intensity.

Do you have the confidence to withstand the gas chamber?

#OTD every year, Pearl Harbor Survivors, veterans, and visitors from all over the world come together to honor and remember the 2,403 service members and civili...ans who were killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. A further 1,178 people were injured in the attack, which permanently sank two U.S. Navy battleships (the USS Arizona and the USS Utah) and destroyed 188 aircraft.

This year, we mark 80 years since the attack. Each year, remembrance events are held at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, culminating in a commemoration ceremony on Dec. 7. These commemorations ensure that future generations understand the valor and legacy of those who perished and those who fought and sacrificed throughout World War II, while also highlighting the importance of the peace and reconciliation that exists today.
