Nomad points out the ROK Army’s latest transformation idea to become a more modern and ready force; by making Ranger training fun by crossing the “magic bridge”:
For most men who have been to the military service, ranger training is remembered as a tough memory of crawling like crazy. The grueling physical training under the mean glance of drill instructors wearing red hats, rope crossing and mud puddle jumping can only be described as strenuous.
The army plans to change such ranger training into a training that will provide some fun to soldiers, while also improving camaraderie and actual fighting skills.
In order to do so, it decided to adopt an artificial rock climbing wall, and to implement climbing a â€œmagic bridgeâ€ and crossing a one-rope bridge, into its obstacle course.
