U.S. Marines Endure Extreme Cold Weather Training In Japan

If you want to be part of the US Marine Corps, you have to endure cold weather training, and this time the US marines undergo that training in Japan. In extreme cold weather, the US marines prepare the camp in the forest, getting ready for the training which lasts for two days in Sekiyama, Japan, from March 13-15 2017 during the Forest Light event.

The Forest Light training is a method developed by the Japanese ground self-defense Force which is later accepted by the US Marines Force as a perfect method for cold weather training. During this event the weather in Japan is perfect for practicing skills like setting up camp, snow digging, snow watch towers and many different operations that are only available on these kinds of weather conditions.

This is the ultimate weather training for every ground force. Do you have what it takes to undergo something similar? Let us know in the comment section below.
