Thanks for the perspective and for the specifics on the changes. I had heard the drills were "watered down" some but did know exactly how. The water breaks seem reasonable and the reduction of time at stations by nearly 15% probably makes a big difference. I have to agree that the old manner of send backs would be a good thing to reinstate maybe with the training staff having more authority to intervene if they think an individual needs to be pulled from a drill. The only time I have ever passed out cold from exhaustion/fatigue in my life was during mats in a multiple send back scenario and thankfully an amonia tab up the nostril cured that condition pretty fast.
