So there I was – lying low in the cold muddy water with my nose just 1 inch above for breathing, holding the rifle in my hand and waiting for others to move forward as quickly as possible. Constant screaming and yelling only added more stress while shivering cold made me think I would definitely get sick if I ever survive this. I was crawling in this water and mud for what seemed to be hours.
That place where I was is called the Officer Candidates School. It is located in Quantico, Virginia and we were taking the US Marine Corps obstacles course while the instructor was yelling at us to move forward faster. This was a course offered as part of my MBA program for those who wanted to experience the real USMC life. It was a very short event, just a few days, but it gave me a totally different perspective on many things in life.
