Chaplain Candidate Intensive Interview
2nd Lieutenant Tiesha Simmons, Chaplain Candidate, reads through the 9 Line information as she calls for a medical evacuation during a training scenario with "wounded" civilians at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, July 25, 2016. The candidates had just completed self-aid buddy care classroom instruction when they were rushed outside to put their new knowledge to the test when an "attack" happened outside, resulting in casualties. During the last week of the Air Force Reserve Command Chaplain Candidate Intensive Interview program, twenty-five candidates were immersed in fast-paced mobility training conducted by active-duty instructors from the 5th CBCSS. This mobility training, typically a two-week process, was condensed and compacted to fit into the two-day window the candidates had available. They received instruction on self-aid and buddy care, land navigation, and participated in mock scenarios that were aimed to prepare them for what they could possibly see in a deployed environment.
