Iraqi Air Force Officer Cadet Training
And so the fun begins. The second class of new Iraqi Officer recruits started their training at the new Air Force Officer Training School recently. Our organization has been working on perfecting this for a long time, and now we get to see the fruits of our labor. TIs screaming at new recruits. I don't care what country you're from, it's always fun to watch.
FYI two weeks ago I escorted the Iraqi Officers to Lackland Air Force Base to view our Air Force Basic Military Training for Enlisted members. Outstanding work on the part of our Military Training Instructors, or TIs, wearing their smokey the bear hats and putting on a show for the Iraqi General with their new recruits.
Enjoy the article.

Haha, why do I feel like that's at least partially directed at me?9:31 AM
I can imagine it is fun to watch - for everyone except the recruit, at least.1:54 PM
What's truly hilarious is that the "TI" doesn't speak a word of Arabic and the recruit more than likely doesn't speak a word of English.
When I was in BMT, it would have been GREAT to be able to completely ignore the useless screaming of my TI.... even easier if I didn't understand what he was spitting in the first place... great job, "TI"!
